Unlock the potential of machine learning techniques to solve your problem.
Build your solutions as decentralized systems.

• What we'll do
During the event, over 100 participants will form teams of 2-5 people and work together on the sponsored technical challenges or their own ideas.

As a participant, you will be invited to the preparatory event before the hack, which will help you find your feet in this event format. Expect fun technical workshops.

Our hackathon takes place at Kraftwerk, a unique space fueling Swiss innovation and collaboration, every day from 8AM to 8PM. No overnight coding!

Safe space
Hack'n'Lead is a friendly space for you to explore career options, learn new things and invent novel solutions. Expect healthy food and relaxing yoga sessions that will feed your brain with great ideas. Just have fun and build cool prototypes with your team. And we promise you won't be the only woman in the room!

Prep event
Never been to a hackathon? Or been to one but would love to attend pitch training , or hands-on blockchain and machine learning workshops? This will be perfect for you! The info event will happen 3 weeks before the hackathon. Come by and we will tell you how to make the most of this experience!

Need a babysitter to attend? We care about you being a parent and we care about your children, so we offer childcare on site. Additionally, every girl and boy at the age of 4+ will be able to attend special afternoon sessions, during which they will learn the priciples of coding in a playful way. All thanks to our friends from Youth Intelligence Agency!

See where you fit with your skills and in which direction to grow. On top of usual tech talks, sponsor and partner companies will provide mentors on site, who are specialists in their domains. They can guide you and answer your career-related or technical questions as you work on your project. Approach them at their booths - this is your chance to learn!
