Last weekend, the University of Groningen Centre of Entrepreneurship hosted a 3-day event, where aspiring entrepreneurs could find out if their startup ideas were viable. Eight different teams were in it to win it, working hard throughout the weekend, coming up with a sound business model around their ideas and perfecting their pitches.
From May 19 to May 21, the University Medical Center Groningen will be one of five Dutch hospitals hosting a 52 hour hackathon. Teams will work around the clock to come up with a cool pitch, concept and prototype, dazzle the local judges and compete on a national scale. Interested in signing up? Check out the website. Gotta be quick though, because half the spots are already filled.

“Worst audience ever!” That’s how Groningen’s newly appointed Chief Digital Officer and Big Building Head Honcho Nick Stevens jokingly characterizes the applause he receives as he walks up on stage to kick off the Dutch Blockchain Hackathon. It’s exactly 1 pm, and the biggest blockchain hackathon in the world runs on a tight schedule, because there’s plenty of work to be done in the span of just one short weekend.
On 10, 11 and 12 February, the Netherlands will be the epicentre of the latest internet technology - blockchain - at the Dutch Blockchain Hackathon 2017, one of Europe's largest and most challenging hackathons. Blockchain promises to become the biggest IT-revolution since the internet. During the hackathon dozens of teams will launch prototypes for new, groundbreaking blockchain applications that will help to organize our society and economy in a smarter way. His Royal Highness Prince Constantijn van Oranje-Nassau, Special Envoy for StartupDelta, will kick off the event on Friday February 10th. An international expert jury will award a total of € 50,000 to the best solutions on the final day.
