Powered by Tremend, a Publicis Sapient company, Pixel Hackathon is the first product-oriented competition organized in Eastern Europe. Pixel’s goal is to build stronger collaboration between Business Analysis, User Experience, and Product Management teams, by enabling them to create miniature incubators to formulate product visions and prototypes and to support professionals in developing envisioning skills and practice, while thinking strategically, through experiential learning.
Every year’s event is endorsed by leading companies, joining the event as partners, and advancing real-life dilemmas that they are confronting to be tackled during the competition. Also, all Partners are delegating a representative to join the jury members in deciding the winning solutions. Also, each partner will bring a representative to the game who will join the jury members to decide the winning solutions.
The first edition of Pixel featured over 40 professionals, divided into 12 teams, from UX Design and Product Owner/Business Analysis practices, enrolled in a 24-hour challenge for finding reliable and innovative solutions addressing two important Sustainable Development Goals formulated by the United Nations: responsible consumption, and affordable and clean energy. Pixel was endorsed this year by four official partners: Mastercard, Raiffeisen Bank, NEPI Rockcastle, and Profi. Each partner brought to the table a challenge that affects society and the communities they serve.
The winning team was one of the teams that received the Mastercard challenge. They designed Leafy, a modern app that offers multiple tips for decreasing the personal footprint and allows users to have their own scores and compete with friends in an extended community.
