The best way to unlock innovation in Washington D.C.

Why have a Hackathon?

Because innovation can come from the last place you’d expect.

Solutions come from regular people with regular problems.

Co-creation is the best way to solve new problems.

What is a Hackathon?

A hackathon (also known as a Design Thinking Session) is a tech innovation marathon. Here, your team solves real-life hurdles using technology to turn an idea into a better, more viable product.

How does a Hackathon work?

We took the Design Thinking method and adapted it for tech development,

following these easy-to-follow steps:

Context & Methodology

Problem Agreement & Definition

Developing a Prototype

Testing the Prototype

The Next Steps (Building)

Where can I host a Hackathon?

Hackathons can be hosted in all sorts of places. All you need is good lighting, access to the Internet/WIFI, refreshments (provided upon request) and most importantly, a large space. Don’t worry if you don't have that last one, because we can arrange that too!

When can I host a Hackathon?

Anytime! Once you send us your proposal, we’ll respond within 24 hours to set up a follow-up meeting (innovation waits for no one, after all). However, we do ask for at least two weeks before the proposed date to organize an awesome and impactful Hackathon. 

Why Disruptica?

Disruptica exists with one mission in mind: Turning your idea into a real product. The start of this process is very important, which is why we believe in the hackathon process. 

What is the cost?

The cost varies depending on the number of participants and the duration of the event. Once we know these two variables we can give you an accurate estimate.

Previous experience?

We have promoted innovation at public and private organizations, on a local and international level. Some of our most recent clients are the Inter-American Development Bank, Code4It PBC, and AM Global, among others.
