FAQ for HackersFAQ for Partners

The next Hack for Sweden will take place on April 4th-6th at Stockholmsmässan in Stockholm, Sweden! Come join us and create smart solutions for a better society!

The Hack for Sweden core event is our yearly hackathon, an event you have to experience firsthand to truly “get what it´s all about”! Hack for Sweden is so much more than a hackathon – it’s an event that brings together the public and the private sector, the programmers and the hippies, the nerds and the academia, the corporates and the kids. In other words, it brings everyone interested in being a part of creating the society we want to have in the future, together with one simple purpose: working to build tools for the benefit of our society.

Want to join in and hack with us? Never hacked before or are you an experienced hacker? Everyone who is passionate about making our society a better place to live, is welcome to apply!
