§ Who can participate?

There is no need for special skills to participate. Our mentors will help transform the idea into a prototype solution. For people with experience in design thinking and service design, this is a good opportunity to expand your expertise and meet like-minded people.

Anyone older than 18 years old can take part in the hackathon. You can be a designer, manager, marketer, entrepreneur, doctor, artist, musician, lawyer, etc. The main thing is to be inquisitive and open-minded.

We encourage a variety of thoughts and experiences. So, we encourage participants not to come up with a team and ready-made ideas. We also recommend that colleagues from the same company work in different teams for new acquaintances and unexpected discoveries.

This year Kyiv Service Jam will bring together 100-150 participants.
