Startup Iceland, Digi.me and AngelHack have joined forces for Data Hack Iceland 2018: powered by AngelHack.
Hackathons are built for rapid innovation, and rapid isn’t always pretty. But no matter the roadblock, broken code or bumps, we continue on and push forward, together. There’s no boundary or limit to what we can create.
So join us! Create something cool. Meet great people. Win great prizes. Who knows, your founder journey may begin in Iceland!
There are a number of awesome sponsors who have their own challenges and prizes you can go after. Aiming for the HACKcelerator invite? Only in it for some cool hardware? Good news, you can go for as many challenges as you want!
Build a cool innovative app using digi.me’s Consent Access platform with a focus on wearables and finance as Dattaca Labs and digi.me make private sharing real!
Code For A Cause Impact Award Challenge: Build technology that solves a social or environmental problem and positively impacts your local community.
Challenge yourself and your entrepreneurial spirit. Make something innovative without limits, something that brings positive change to the world, even something that solves a small problem. It’s that simple
Flights (from Iceland or equiv), tickets and accommodation to Slush in Helsinki 30th Nov - 3rd Dec (3 nights) for the entire team. Tickets for Startup Iceland 2018 conference.

We all start coding at the same time. It’s cool to work on designs beforehand, digital mockups, open source frameworks, and anything else available to everyone, but keep things within fair limits.
Winning teams may be subject to a code-review at some point following the event or immediately before winning. This is to ensure that all code used is in fact fresh.
You own your IP and whatever you create. Simple as that.
No more than five people.
Each hackathon has its individual hackathon.iopage where projects need to be submitted by the designated time. You’ll receive an email with instructions on how to do just that.
You’ll have 2 minutes to demo the functionality of your project and talk through your idea, and 1 minute for Q&A from judges.
Be cool to your fellow hackers! Check out our Code of Conduct.
