By designing a hackathon, we helped Liberty Global promote innovation of their products (and to see it leveraged in a new way). We gave it the name Appathon.TV. After a successful first year with an in-house event in 2014, the project expanded beyond Liberty Global walls into an open, two-day hackathon in 2015 and 2016.
Besides Liberty Global, other highly innovative companies have also embraced hackathons. We believe they have the power to stimulate collaboration between developers, marketers and CEOs, and can create products or simply get ideas flowing outside of the conventional box.
Over the years, we have developed and organized over 10 hackathons, featuring hackdeoverheid (Open State foundation), musichackday (attended by Spotify, Echonest, Soundcloud and Lastfm) and NPO (the Dutch National Broadcasting Corporation).
