Challenge outline


The world’s politics are more divided than ever, but if there is something we can all agree on, it’s the power of democracy. That’s why we’re dedicating two days to hack our way into simpler times exactly one month prior to the elections in Germany.

Compete in teams with others, bring your project to the next level, develop it together with experienced coaches, find inspiration, meet like-minded people and present your idea in front of an high-class jury.

Bring your idea to life

Do you already have a first idea or are you already working on a concrete project on this topic?

Whether it be an algorithm to sniff out fake news, a “Trump and Dump bot” to handle unpredictability, a tool that blows up filter bubbles, an online platform that supports refugees, a new protest movement or an initiative to motivate young people for political topics. Teams will join us in creating limitation free, civic-minded concepts that will support and better our future.

Judges and prizes

Contributors will be judged by an exciting panel of renowned politicians, scientists, media and startup experts as well as our own partners and sponsors.

The winning team’s work will be displayed at our election party on September 24th! ​

Prizes: besides two days of fun and inspiring projects, the jury will award the three best teams a prize with a collective value of €10,000.
