The UK’s largest Project Data Hackathon is set to return in November at the Spurs football stadium next month and is looking for sponsors.
Project:Hack is the UK’s largest project data hackathon, founded by Projecting Success and delivered by the Project Data Analytics Community in collaboration with the Association for Project Management (APM), HS2, Gleeds, KBR and other key sponsors.
Taking place at the Tnorth London stadium on 28 & 29 November, the not-for-profit event aims to bring together project and data professionals alongside students to push new boundaries, develop innovative solutions and transform how projects are delivered.
A statement said: “Projecting Success wants to inspire and build a positive data culture within organisations and to help them understand the potential data has to significantly improve their projecting by optimising how decisions are made.
“Through the Hackathon, they are able to subject people and data to new ideas and ways of thinking.
“It inspires people to know they can turn their ideas into working models over the course of just a couple of days.
“It’s a fantastic environment to expose project delivery professionals to new ways of thinking and especially to collaborative behaviours.”
Established in 2018, the Hackathon has now been delivered 16 times with over 1,600 attendees and £11,000 in charitable donations.
For this event, the community are donating their ticket sales to the Wildlife Trust, in support of the natural environment.
Projects have a substantial impact on the environment, and this donation aims to help protect the habitat of wildlift across the country. With environmental change a core focus of the hack, the wildlife trust is a no brainer.
Martin Paver, CEO & Founder of Projecting Success, said: “We are actively looking for companies to sponsor our event.
“Sponsoring the hackathons position organisations as forward thinking and innovative.
“We are driven to make our projects safer, more productive, environmentally friendly and less expensive, especially within the current financial climate.
“We have built an ambitious vision alongside the Project Data Analytics Task force on how as a profession we bring data to the forefront to support these key objectives.
“A fundamental part of that vision is to convert innovation into tools and practices and make these easily accessible and deployable.
“Sponsorship enables the hackathons to continuously provide an accelerated platform to fulfil this vision collaboratively, connecting people and organisations.”
“Although there are many cross-sector digital initiatives driving change, at a macro level there is a lack of ambition to truly transform how projects are managed and delivered. We aspire to change this by showing the art of the possible with data and building real solutions to real project challenges.”
As a warm-up to the Hackathon, Projecting Success are hosting a ‘Meet-Up’ session on the 3 November.
