In this episode of Fast Fix Friday I talk hackathons, and how, while they are a great tool for bringing teams together to move quickly to build prototypes, are often done in a way that doesn't focus on problem solution fit, unique value proposition or business model.
Essentially, most hackathons fall into the all to common trap of building what excites the team building it, but not the market. This is the main reason why 96% of startups and new ventures fail.
I talk through what you and/or your organisation need to think about in order to run a successful hackathon that can deliver genuine outcomes and galvanise an organisation around its innovation efforts.
