How this Hack Event Business Case Guide Will Help You
- These 60 slides give you a structured background and set of approaches to explain and argue the case for a Hackathon Event.
- The slides can be used as templates to create a presentation, or as a guide to follow.
- The approach is useful for both in-house innovation events, and industry collaboration events.
- The approach focusses on Hackathon Events that involve prototyping, because all good innovation events are about that.
- Pages with the yellow and black stripes at the bottom provide additional guidance and context, and should be removed if you use this as a presentation template.
- It is a “Toolbox” approach: You do not need to use all the tools, but just the ones you need.
- These guides form part of the FROST Innovation Framework, and can also be used standalone.
