HACK BELGIUM 2020 PROGRAM IS IN YOUR HANDS

This year we’re opening up the program to the partner companies, selected professionals and the public. While the overall content of the event is linked to three major themes (People, Planet & Tech), the specific content will be guided by challenges proposed and selected by you. Each of the them will have its own workshop (up to 60 people) and a set of Experts during the event.

The Challenges – from very pragmatic and immediate to wild “moonshot” and long-term – will also serve as focal points for communication of Hack Belgium 2020, and create a fantastic opportunity to bring together the existing ecosystem around your company, and to identify new companies and people that you should collaborate with.

The best way to propose and to immediately validate your challenge is through our upcoming two Hack Belgium Pro Ideation Sessions.

30 JANUARY, 2020 12:30 - 16:00

HACK BELGIUM PRO IDEATION I

Defining challenges, discovering opportunities.

In this half-day ideation workshop you’ll hear inspiring expert briefings across three themes (People, Planet & Tech), and follow a professionally facilitated brainstorming to identify the potential synergies with other professionals taking part.

If you already have a challenge in mind, you’ll be able to pitch it to about 60 participants (invited by Hack Belgium team) and to immediately see if they find it relevant and valuable. You’ll get a good sense of whether your challenge will be successful at Hack Belgium, and to start recruiting people and companies to work with you on your challenge.

19 MARCH, 2020 12:30 - 16:00

HACK BELGIUM PRO IDEATION II

Going deep, finding robust ideas for solutions.

In the second half-day ideation session, you’ll work with up to 100 fellow innovators to brainstorm first ideas based on the challenges, to further explore synergies, and to start building dream teams for Hack Belgium 2020. Bring a few more colleagues and people from your ecosystem to create excitement around your challenge

Joining us for the Hack Belgium Pro events is the best way to make sure the ideation workshop linked to your challenge is filled to bursting with highly relevant, enthusiastic and committed participants
