Registration is now open to groups or individuals with great ideas, passion and motivation to make it happen.
You can register as an individual or as a team of up to 5 people.


How #BroncosHack works

  • Inspiration: We will kick-off with a few short presentations about the challenge we will work on.

  • Teaming forming: You are encouraged to register as a team but if you are missing a team member or registering as an individual, we will help you find teammates.

  • Ideation: Once teams are formed the brainstorming commences, put forward a bunch of ideas and select the one you want to work on for the remainder of the hackathon.

  • Developing: We will ensure you have time to develop your ideas, construct a prototype if possible, and formulate your presentation.

  • Pitching: Each team will pitch their innovative idea to a panel of judges, who will deliberate and select a winning team.

  • Social hour: Chill out, socialise and celebrate your achievement.


To successfully turn your ideas into a #BroncosHack solution, you must address the following design and product aspects:


Innovation and Design
Is the solution unique or relatively original in the target market?

  • If there is a similar product of service on the market, does the solution clearly and meaningfully innovate beyond those existing product or service? Is the solution intuitive and will target-users find it user-friendly?


Design inclusively
Is the user experience smooth?

  • Does the solution consider diverse stakeholder perspectives?


Practicality and feasibility
Does the solution address the core issue(s) of the hackathon challenge?

  • Does it encourage cross-disciplinary collaboration?

Tech Proficiency
Does the solution make effective and appropriate use of technology?

E.G: How well does it integrate and leverage the benefits of key technology such as chatbot, cloud computing, real-time analytics, big data, etc.

  • Is the solution a comprehensive technology design? Or is it part of a larger solution?

  • Has the team considered the ongoing support costs and requirements of implementing the solution?
