If you think a hackathon is just for coders, think again. The word “hack” traditionally refers to computer programming. So, how does that apply to business? The hackathon started as a meeting of the minds for programmers to use their skills collaboratively to create digital products, but this concept can be broadened to expand across businesses to create solutions and ideas by utilizing your group’s collective abilities. A hackathon not only allows companies to be seen as innovative thought leaders, but it also allows team members to share ownership in a product or solution. It can also help boost company morale.
