tl;dr Went to a hackathon again and it was just an amazing weekend!

The last one was some time ago now. And I thought: Man, you need to go to a hackathon again! ๐Ÿ’ช And boy, this was a unique one! ๐Ÿ˜Last weekend I was one of the 46 participants of the Insurathon 2018 organized by the SV Sparkassen Versicherung (which Iโ€™m also working for). The task was simple: Hack yourself through the night and design the insurance of tomorrow. Oh and do that within 28 hours, please. ๐Ÿš€ But it was just a very special event. Perfectly organized with so many great people and even greater ideas. But what did I actually do there? Well, it was not me alone (that would be crazy by the way). I had a really talented team with 4 hackers and me and we had so much fun! Yes, actually no sleep, but so much fun! Our idea was to build a platform for everything around events. And what about insurance? Well, we integrated something like a microinsurance perfectly suited for the dangers the might happen on that particular event. We really put a lot of effort into our prototype and branding and developed a pretty nice mobile app for Android and iOS. ๐Ÿ“ฑ After the first pitch on Sunday evening, 5 of 11 teams moved to the finals on Monday night. And you know what? We were one of them! ๐Ÿ˜ฑ That was already crazy, there were so many great teams and I think it was a very hard decision for the jury. But boy, things get even crazier now. The finals really kicked ass! Every team improved again their product and their pitch and everyone was a dream. And then it was time for the decisionโ€ฆ and you know what?! TWO PRICES!!! TWO! First, the crowd voting price and then an amazing 3rd place. Afterward, we were just in heaven and had a great time! ๐ŸŽ‰

Thank you for everything! And thanks to everyone who made this event possible and was a part of it. I hope this wonโ€™t be the last. See you guys at the next one.
