The Hacker eats, sleeps and breathes code. With a knack for spreadsheets and all things data, the hacker is in charge of one of the hardest tasks — creating the actual product. The Hacker is instrumental in choosing the coding environment and platform for the business to sustain growth.
The Hustler eats, sleeps and breathes the business model. The Hustler has a keen eye for numbers, such as financials, cost structure and user metrics, can speak to the long and short-term vision of the business, and can make investor pitches and tough decisions.
The Hipster eats, sleeps and breathes design. This is the designer that makes sure the product is delivering the best customer experience. The Hipster sets best practices in design, brand identity building, user experience, and the look and feel of the product.
Self-development talks by prominent individuals will be held. At the end of the day the participants will be tasked to create their own life trajectory, which will help them have a better understanding of themselves on what they want to achieve, why they want to achieve it, and how they want to achieve it.
Workshops on business model creation, UI/UX, analytics, and more will be offered to the participants. These activities will help the participants learn more about their chosen fields so that they may be able to sharpen and develop the skills they need to achieve their goals. Later in the day, the participants will be given time with their teams to better prepare for the pitching competition the next day.
Participants will be given a case to work on and pitch to a panel of esteemed figures from their fields. After the winners are announced, a farewell dinner will follow at a nearby restaurant to close the event.Apply Now
