We're looking for the innovators that will shape the future of hybrid remote work.
xgeeks, Startup Leiria and Câmara Municipal de Leiria come together to bring you the first (of many) Geekathon's edition - the hackathon that gathers all the geeks out there!
We challenge you to build the tools that will optimize remote hybrid work setups. The workplaces have changed drastically in the last 2 years and with it, opportunities to make work, day-to-day routines, and professional relationships are infinite. More than 125 million people around the world work more than 40 hours per week. The solution being built during this first edition of Geekathon might impact the next working generation! Let's do it?! 🚀
We’re looking for solutions that can range from communication to team building, to task management and other domains, you name it.

You and your team will work for 24-hours to build a solution that will make the future of workplaces better. The submitted projects can either be a demo, presentation, or mockup of only one product/solution.
The challenge includes several categories that are merely an indication of the path each team can take. ⚠️ These are just guidelines, your project doesn't need to necessarily fit one of the following categories.
