Track record and success stories

Since 2018, EIT Digital has successfully held DeepHacks in physical locations, such as Berlin ("Hack the Mass Customization") and Silicon Valley ("Hack the Bay Area Traffic Congestion").  In 2020, due to the Covid-19 pandemic, it pivoted to a Web-based format, with six online events.

"At Urban Radar we are very impressed with the results of the DeepHack, as this well-run event not only provided us with several new concepts for follow up projects, but also brought new business partners and student talent.

Philippe Rapin, CEO of Urban Radar, sponsor of the “Data for Urban Logistics” DeepHack, November 2020.

"And we're open! From today onwards Junusstraat will be 47, Wageningen, the place where you start eating locally. The freezer is full of vegan soups, pastries and sliced vegetables! Help fight food waste together. By having won last year the ‘From Farm to Fork’ DeepHack, it gave us the motivation to realize this project!"

Freeze4Ease team, one of the 2020 winners. In January 2021  they launched in Wageningen (The Netherlands) their startup, which sells frozen local produce in city centers.

"I'm super impressed by the EIT Digital Deep Hack: The CAD elite meets in Berlin to hack the boundaries of 3D printing applications, using our paramate platform."

Florian Reichle, CEO of Trinckle, sponsor of the “Hack the Mass Customisation” DeepHack, December 2018.
