If you’re a student, you probably had quite some experience in pulling all-nighters. Now, DAS, a company who specializes in legal expenses insurance, is asking students to do just that. During a 24 hour hackathon at their head office, student teams are challenged to solve big challenges together. The prize: a month’s rent for your student dorm (and solving world hunger, of course).
Big conflicts, big problems
As a legal expenses insurer, DAS assists individuals, companies, and governments with juridical conflicts on a daily basis. The first challenge that student teams can work on, is finding a way in which these conflicts might be prevented in the future. What solutions are there to help de-escalate conflicts before they become too big? And can developments in the sharing economy, artificial intelligence and the Internet of Things bring solutions to these problems? Students have 24 hours to find out.
