A Founder Story

Oliver Bruemmer
The Hackathon Company GmbH

Language: English

Zoom-Link

Meeting-ID: 965 3613 1009

Oliver Bruemmer is the founder and CEO of The Hackathon Company GmbH. He describes his founding journey as follows:

„The founding story of our hackathons resulted from one widespread problem: I witnessed (far too) often, how companies made their (working) life unnecessarily difficult. So, in the summer of 2018, the journey started: At that time, I still had another full-time job - so founding a startup wasn't even that easy. Nevertheless, I was and am so convinced of the mission behind The Hackathon Company that I couldn't let go. Since the beginning of 2021, I have been dedicating myself full-time, with a team of now over 15 people, to hackathons and helping companies find individual solutions. We're not about developing an exclusive product. Nor do we want to 'help' anyone. Our aim is to be the needed sparring partner to companies, while making their day-to-day lifes better/ easier.“
