Build, Collaborate, & Network!
The very first DPW Hackathon took place at DPW2019, and instantly became a source of inspiration for the global procurement community.
And we’re going to the next round!
In just 24 hours, you’ll move the needle. You’ll get hands-on experience by joining like-minded procurement experts, developers, and UX/UI designers from established companies, startups and universities alike to create the newest and best procurement processes and/or technology available. You’ll have support and guidance from digital procurement experts and mentors. You’ll connect with the creme de la creme of the procurement industry! What’s more – meals, snacks, a never-ending stream of coffee, and cool prizes for the winning teams are provided.
But above all, our hackathon is about having fun! It is an opportunity to learn, test your coding skills, make new friends from across the globe, and maybe even develop entirely novel solutions and turn them into a business.Apply Today
