20Creathon concept

CREATHON?

Create surprising solutions for social issues
How do you come up with solutions for complicated social issues? We developed the creathon, a kind of pressure cooker for ideas. The results? Surprising and innovative solutions for social challenges.

This is how it works
During a 24- or 48-hours creative marathon professionals, students and interested citizens work in teams to develop solutions for predefined (grand) challenges. Data are used to trigger innovative thinking. Software development is not necessarily leading; hardware development receives explicit attention. At the end of the event, the results are pitched in front of a professional jury to determine the winner(s). A creathon is a stimulating experience in co-learning and co-development of entrepreneurial skills and insight in specific details of the challenges.

MISSION

20Creathon Events ignites the passion of the community of code creators and change makers to invent the new and make the change happen, together. Through our creathons, we help our participants to build, test and launch their ideas to the world. We help corporate trend setters drive open innovation for products, platforms and brands by connecting them to the smarts, scale and speed of our community.

Our outreach initiatives are specifically crafted to help corporations meet, greet, and connect with the workforce of the future while starting a dialogue to grow your brand’s awareness.

WE LOVE WHAT WE DO AND WE DO IT WITH PASSION.

OUR PASSION FOR WHAT WE DO IS RENDERED IN OUR SERVICES.

20CREATHON
CORE
VALUES

DOING

Actions rather than words. The sober entrepreneurial mentality. As 20Creathon we help the participants to make steps forward. Don’t wait until the idea is perfect, but try it out. Step by step, detail by detail, dare to do. That’s the fastest way to success.

FLEXIBILITY

Dare to change. If you want to be successful, you have to be flexible. Continuous change. Remain critical and always want more. Measuring, experimenting, making conclusions… Think about what really need to change in our society.

INNOVATION

Just that little bit more. Stop and think. Dream, plan, and execute. The better the participants become in devising and carrying out, the more successful the ideas.

COLLABORATE

If people were the building blocks of an organization, the collaboration is the cement which holds them together. Powerful. The essence of success lies in the collaboration. Working in teams makes us stronger, smarter and better. 20Creathon welcomes new insights and utilize every new contribution.

ECLIPSE THE EXPECTATIONS

Different. Brilliant. Events at 20Creathon are in an exciting, energetic and enjoyable feeling. Participants are working in a relaxed and inspiring environment where their expectations are exceeded, and surpassed the expectations.
