Junction is known as the largest Hackathon event in Europe and also the largest Hackathon community for students from all over the world. Junction as a whole is embracing the notion of seeing each problem as an opportunity. That is really one of the essentials of the community and how Junction’s members have tackled every challenge that they have faced. The uniqueness of the people involved, the creativity, persistence and the curiosity that the community is built upon, is something that Junction do not want just to keep to themselves.

Thence, starting from 2017, Junction has expanded its community to other continents with JUNCTIONx. JUNCTIONx has been to Japan, China, Budapest, Jeddah. And in October 2018, it is coming to Vietnam with JUNCTIONxHanoi. At JUNCTIONxHanoi, we create an innovative playground and use technology as a tool to solve challenges. The program will be a real bridge to connect between businesses and young talents in the economy 4.0.

Anyone who is under the age of 25 individuals can participate in this competition as part of a team. A team can have at most 5 members and at least 3 members. The hackathon competition will last 48 hours, containing more than one track for groups to select and use technology to convert an idea into a practical product. Final products usually come in the form of a website, a phone application or a robot,etc. The content of the competing track will be set by the business partners of the program (track owner) to bring to the most practical and highly applicable topic.

Coming to the program, businesses will have the following benefits:

  • Choose your own track: Through the track, the business will transmit the message as well as find creative solutions which are suitable to business’s strategy.
  • The event will be a great recruitment opportunity for businesses through working process and communication with young talents. We are actively connecting with thousands of Vietnamese students through the Clubs, Student Groups to be able to bring the most talented candidates to the contest.
  • Raising brand: Junction is a large community with many partners in the world. If businesses become a partner in the JUNCTIONx community ecosystem, company will can connect to others to bring the brand out of the Vietnamese boundary.

Let us create a revolutionary event and a world-class playground for young Vietnamese people.
