What is it all about?

On the weekend of March 27-29, the Belgian startup community brings the Hack the Crisis movement to Belgium.

The corona virus affects our society as a whole and brings along unseen, yet very real societal challenges. As a result, the tech and startup world come together to launch a public platform to create dedicated solutions during an online hackathon: HACK THE CRISIS.

Inspired by previous initiatives in other European countries, the Belgian edition will be an intense weekend during which several teams will work remotely on various societal problems, all of which are linked to the corona crisis.

This public online event invites developers, innovative companies, tech players, creatives, and everyone who wants to join forces to, virtually, put the minds together and come up with innovative solutions to counter this crisis.

How does it work?

Submit your problems & challenges or sign up as a team that can help solve these challenges and create solutions for the crisis. Our role will be to coordinate the processes and provide all the necessary information, mentorship and contacts for your solutions.

I don't have a team. Can I join?

Yes! Please feel free to register as an individual participant and let us know what the fields of your expertise are. If we will have any teams looking for extra hands with your skills – we will let you know ASAP.

When will the hackathon take place?

Hackathon will take place ONLINE. We will announce the full agenda soon, but you can get ready for the main action to take place on the 27-29th of March.

As this is not a traditional event and some solutions are needed right now, the most urgent cases will be solved as soon as possible.
