Agenda for the week

Prepare to work daily from 8:30-16:00

Student; please prepare to work daily from 8:30 to 16:00. It is important to make room for Sprint for the whole week (Monday-Friday) since the team work will be intensive and requires each team member being present – either on campus or online, depending on which challenge you are going to solve.

Friday will be an exception since it’s the Final Pitching Day and your team will participate in one of the two hour long sessions between 9:00–15:00. If you are attending an online challenge, your schedule will be 9:00-11:00 and 12:00-12:45.
Final Gala (with winner team announcements) will be held at Nightclub Ilona, the estimated schedule for the gala is 18:00-20:30.
