What the heck is a Student Track mini hackathon?
Students can participate in the Student Track mini hackathon at the Tahko Ski Lift Pitch goes Iisalmi event. In the program part, there is a great opportunity to spar a new or developing idea with the representatives of the top companies in Ylä-Savo! At that time, the representatives can hear the young people’s ideas, and give feedback regarding the ingenuity and the idea. During the day, we will also familiarize ourselves with the summer work, internship and thesis opportunities offered by the companies. Those who want to can also pitch their own skills to companies with the goal of getting, for example, a job interview at the company!
