106 teams. 16 locations. Almost 600 UBS employees got together for the fifth edition of our Hackathon. Colleagues with all different professional backgrounds, from developers to UX designers, project managers to marketing gurus, pitched innovative ideas and collaborated to bring them to life.
Why do we do it? Collaboration is the core of UBS, it's in our DNA. This is why, every year, our Hackathon gets bigger and better. It's an opportunity for colleagues to get engaged, collaborate across functions and also for some good out-of-the-box thinking and to give a unique contribution in innovating our company. Together.
This was our most global Hackathon yet. Our locations in Weehawken, Nashville, Stamford, Chicago, Sao Paulo, Tokyo, Shanghai, Hong Kong, Singapore, Sydney, Pune, Mumbai, London, Zurich, Krakow and Wroclaw were buzzing for two days with brilliant ideas!
Of course, to add to the electricity, we had to throw in a little friendly competition. The ideas with the best scores in use of technologies, business impact, creativity and innovation, viability and design became the winners for each region across the globe and will even get the chance to become reality within the company.
