hack it until you make it!


The third HACK IT DAYZ is in the sign of the future. You are expected to show your vision of the future and try to change it – the future of video communication, to be precise. Use your knowledge, apply the technology, add imagination and think of something revolutionary that will be talked about in the future. Don’t go solo, empower yourself, gather a team (up to 4 persons) because four heads can do a lot more than one. If you don’t have a team, don’t worry – we’ll help you find the best people.

Apply to the HACK IT DAYZ which will be held 24th-25th November in ALGEBRA LAB Innovation Incubator. Show what you know!
The best of the best, apart from the fame, will get the main prize: 30,000 HRK!

And everybody will get the opportunity to meet outstanding people whose ideas have gone through, people who are creating the future. Meet and listen to interesting experts. In the future, they might listen to you.




Video – filters, assistants, corporate social responsibility… Do something that will change the future. You’ve got 24 hours.


You and three others. It would be great if you were a developer/programmer, or if you had such people in your team, and one of you should also have business/marketing/product skills.


Do it for yourself. Valuable rewards – financial prizes and the opportunity to improve your idea and present it to potential investors.


Apply here and win.
