Hackathon in Madrid!


This hackathon was a bit different to the other ones we organised: teams outside the program could also participate in the hackathon. Together with us, we also managed to have some top-notch mentors such as Jose Ignacio Fernandez, CTO at Traity (for product) and Marc Borrás, Product Designer at OnTruck.

The Tetuan Valley Hackathon was a whole weekend, 19th-20th November, of hard work and coding. The event was organized as a part of the Tetuan Valley Startup School, in the stage of Product Development. It was held at Google’s Campus Madrid, one of the most important spaces for entrepreneurs in Madrid.


The purpose of this weekend was for early stage startups who are working on a prototype or MVP to come build their prototype, add functionalities or improve features. The end goal was for all teams to have fully functional prototypes by the end of the weekend, and for those with already existing prototypes to add user validated functionalities. This hackathon was not a contest, it was a space for entrepreneurs to accomplish goals that they had set for themselves, to share and learn from others.

Over 50 people attended this hackathon including both participants and mentors. 12 teams worked with 11 mentors throughout the two days and they all presented their functional prototypes at the end of the Hackathon.

Hope you came and built something!
