Where Tallinn, Estonia

  • Overview
  • DO YOU HAVE WHAT IT TAKES? Garage48 and Superangel proudly present: Base Camp Hackathon vol 4.

    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 access to 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. 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.


    Alpine House is a 12+ month location-independent coaching program designed to take your startup to the next financing round or next major milestone. Alpine House selects up to 5 startups at a time who each receive a personal attention from a Superangel partner, who takes active co-founder role for the entire program.

    During the year, Superangel builds a tailored growth program around your team including in depth marketing and sales coaches, personal HR specialist to help with hiring and onboarding and a Superangel partner or a top startup founder to make sure you raise the next round or reach the next major milestone. Everything you need to build a global successful startup.

    We are inviting up to 10 teams to Base Camp - a 3-day hackathon that will take place from 6th to 8th of March 2020 in Tallinn, Estonia to develop your prototypes or products even further. This is your chance to show the Superangel team that you have what it takes to become the next unicorn!

    We are also inviting talented individuals - developers, designers, bright business, sales and marketing 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 AS A TEAM, you need to apply for Superangel Alpine House and if selected, you are automatically invited to take part in the Base Camp Hackathon. Deadline for team applications is the 20th of February 2020.
