15 Juni 2018 The first PFAFF HACK is about to get off its starting blocks. Everyone is excited what is going to happen within the next 24 hours. Our team worked hard to organize the event and to pose you some interesting challenges.

Eine Gruppe arbeitet an einer Idee für ein nachhaltiges Stadtquartier

After a short intro the teams got off to work. Every team has a mentor at their side helping them with ideation and developing their ideas into prototypes. The teams chose the topics they wanted to work on themself and had enough room to think outside box.

After a short talk about the idea of a climate-neutral urban quarter in front of the newly build Pfaffquartier, the teams chose the topics they wanted to work on and started to find solutions.

Hard work doesn’t go without good food obviously! We provided plenty of healthy snacks and fruits for our participants throughout the event. At the evening we ordered lasagna (vegetarian or with meat) to get everyone ready and energized for the night.

The teams gave their all so that we even had to put up additional tables during the creativity session to make room for all the fresh ideas. Even throughout the night they worked ambitiously on their projects to achieve the best results. None wanted to quit during the marathon.

Finding ideas took place on paper. That changed later, when the teams turned towards implementing their ideas

Even at night everyone was active

Sitting 24 hours makes your back hurt? We’ve got you covered! Not at our hackathon. Thanks to our partner UNISPORT anyone who liked had the chance to relax their body with some morning excercise.

Stay healthy and relaxed!

Towards the end one could feel exhausted, but our particpants stayed though! No stopping … even in our chill out area you could find them working on their projects.

Inside and relaxing beneath trees? Not possible? Wrong!

Before pitching their results in front of a jury, our teams had some pizza to fill their stomaches. With 50+ people on the event we had to have “some” pizza delivered.

Pizza for everyone!

The reward of 24 hours of hard work. The teams presented their solutions for a climate-friendly city quarter. Stunning results have been made during our first hackathon!

Meins Deins Teil! MeDeTe (in engl.: Mine, Yours, Share). A great idea about sharing instead of buying. And if something is needed that doesn't exist, commercial providers fill that gap
