WhatTheHack is Belgium’s most epic student hackathon. Gather with 250 students from engineering, business and beyond to bring your ideas to life in 24 hours.

What is WhatTheHack?

WhatTheHack is an “invention marathon” where students come together to develop a product over the course of a weekend. You will work in teams of up to 5 students on one of our six big challenges. In just 24 hours, your team will go from an idea to a prototype. To encourage you to think further than just one weekend, you will also pitch a small business plan.

Now don’t worry, you don’t need a lot of experience to participate. Our mentors and workshops will help you get there. You’ll learn new practical skills, collaborate intensely and have a lot of fun. Best of all, we’ll have nice food and goodies for everyone, all for free!


Enjoy the many technical experts that will help you with coding and fixing bugs or learning new technology and entrepreneurial mentors who will help you with your business plan and pitch.We’re also hosting some introductory workshops so you can pick up new skills easily at WhatTheHack.
