Future Leaders’ Hackathon 2018



American Chamber Future Leaders’
Hackathon 2018

in partnership with the DCU Ryan Academy
8 – 10 February 2018

Application Deadline: Wednesday 20 December


Following the success of #WorldofTalent Future Leaders Hackathon 2017, the Chamber is delighted to announce its return, from 8 – 10 February 2018. The Hackathon will gather 80 – 100 future leaders from our member companies to form multi-disciplinary cross-sector teams to hack a solution to our #WorldofTalent Challenge: To create an innovation, service or product that facilitates Ireland to be the best place to live and work.

Hosted in partnership with the DCU Ryan Academy, the Hackathon provides a fantastic opportunity for nominated future leaders to hothouse their leadership skills – communications, marketing, team-building, negotiating, pitching, presenting, to name a few – to network in a fun, yet competitive, environment and to create innovative solutions. 

The multi-disciplinary, cross sector Hackathon teams will be formed from our members, ensuring that all participants have an opportunity to maximise engagement with other companies. A great opportunity for your next generation leaders – no matter their skills background as a Hackathon needs all kinds of participants (it is not just for techies!) – to participate in a great personal and professional development opportunity.
