  • Garage48 proudly presents: Base Camp Hackathon Vol.2, coming up in March 8th, 2019.

     

    Base Camp is an exclusive hackathon format, designed for young startups that already have a working prototype and who would like to join the 12-month high altitude training. In other words, this hackathon offers an all-inclusive golden package that is needed at the very early stage of a startup lifecycle. By participating, you will be taking your first steps in the Superangel Alpine House journey.

     

    Base Camp concept is created as a result of the need in the market, where many successful startups kept failing due to the lack of extra boost that is needed to turn an initial business idea into a potential multimillion-euro company.

     

    Ever since it was founded, Garage48 has been helping to create teams, develop ideas and turn them into prototypes in mere 48 hours. Some of the startups born from our hackathons became a huge success and raised several rounds of venture capital, some were acquired by major companies and many are successfully still operating today. MSQRD, Vitalfields, and Timbeter are just a few of these names. But we are aware that with some more boost, we could see more unicorns rising. That is why Garage48 and Superangel have joined forces once again to give an exclusive nudge to young startups. 


    The first Base Camp Hackathon took place in September 2018 in Estonia and Garage48 sent its very first Base Camp winners to Superangel Alpine House Programme. Now it is time to enable and empower new unicorns.


    LEARN ABOUT WHAT YOU CAN GET OUT OF IT:


    Superangel Alpine House is a 12-month “high altitude training” program for early stage startups that takes them to the next level. It comes with 50k-100k investment, 5-week intensive customer development session in Silicon Valley and 1-year coaching from a Superangel partner or a top startup founder to make sure you raise the next round or reach the next major milestone.

    We are inviting up to 10 teams to Base Camp- a 3-day hackathon that will take place from 8th to 10th of March 2019 in Tallinn, Estonia to develop your prototypes or products even further.


    We are also inviting talented individuals - developers, data scientists, designers, bright business minds who will be able to join if the selected teams lack some brain-power. Just for the weekend, or who knows - for the rest of your life.


    TO PARTICIPATE IN BASE CAMP, THERE ARE 2 WAYS:  

     

    1. To participate as an INDIVIDUAL, you need to fill in an application form - just like with any other Garage48 events.
    Apply as an individual participant here: https://garage48.typeform.com/to/ovPpOd

     

    Base Camp is ideal if you have already participated in several Garage48 hackathons as a designer, developer or business wizard, have a drive to make things happen and are looking for new experiences and challenges.

     

    Deadline for individual applications is 28th of February.


    2. To participate as a TEAM, you need to apply for Superangel Alpine House and if selected, you are automatically invited to take part in Base Camp. To put the cherry on top - you don't need to be based in Estonia to participate in the hackathon. We may fly you over to Estonia.


    Deadline for team applications is 31st of January.
