Idea Hackathon
STARTER programme and Fast Track Tartu opening event - Idea Hackathon!

How to generate ideas, how to recognize good ideas and what to do with an idea? Come to Idea hackathon to find new ideas and turn them into reality! You will also meet with different Tartu startup community organizations.

โœ… If you have an idea 
that could change the world - even a little bit - we will help you to develop and test the idea, find teammates, take first steps and bring your idea to life!
โœ… If you don't have an idea
then you can find the idea that interests you from the hackathon! Simply show up, listen to different pitches and join the team that you like the best!  

The most important thing is that you would have an interest towards entrepreneurship! The idea doesn't need to be a startup idea, it can be a project or NGO idea as well! Through STARTER programme workshops you will learn how to pitch, develop your idea and how to turn the idea into reality!

Idea Hackathon is also the opening event for Fast Track Tartu! During the summer all the Tartu startup community member organizations came together and decided to pilot an idea about united startup ecosystem. At the Idea Hackathon, you will have a chance to meet with different organizations and incubators!
