Covid-19 sent us all back to our living room which turned into an office for most of us. The coworkers we used to see everyday are now pixels on our screen. We need the best tools to make our new workplace, a better place to work. Why wouldn't you help develop these tools ?


๐Ÿš€42 Entrepreneurs missions is to promote entrepreneurship and through this event we hope we can inspire people to launch their startup

Who ?

Anyone motivated, however we require at least one student or alumni from 42 in every team. If you don't know anyone from 42 don't worry, we'll help you match with them ๐Ÿค

When ?

From the 6th to 8th of May 2020

Where ?

What is the best place to organise an hackathon called "Back to the living room" ? You got it right : your living room ๐Ÿ˜‰

We will provide you with tools to communicate efficiently with your team.

What are the objectives?

If you don't have a team yet, choose a topic you like and talk with other people to form a team, you will then develop your idea in teams and create an MVP (minimum viable product) to present at the end of the hackathon.
