You will need blockchain expertise in order to solve global challenges. Participants of the Blockchaingers Hackathon will have to study this new technology or have professional experience.

Every team needs a diverse set of skills. For instance, you need business experts, marketing guru’s, technical wizards, etc. Important: make sure your team consists of people that can quickly adapt to change, as during our hackathon you will be experiencing time pressure in a dynamic environment.

  • Business/ enterprise/ software architect

Suggested additional experts (maximum of 8 team members):
