The Game has changed
Some 70 years ago Axel Springer started his company with a TV and Radio magazine, seeing the disruptive power of the new media of his time. This tells us something about us, about our spirit for discovery, our business DNA.
Today the Internet, new devices and constantly changing user behaviour are disrupting all our businesses, all around the world, all the time.
But it is not Axel Springer style to wait too long until the end of line is reached; rather we are going to do our homework right now!
Therefore we are happy to invite you one more time to the Axel Springer Hackday.
Join us to meet face to face with other members of our corporate family, express your digital love and explore new possibilities beyond today’s businesses.
Axel Springer Hackday is here to bring together creative programmers, designers, mobility experts, product visionaries, hardware producers and superheroes. We want to foster contact between the company’s technologic and emotion. TO ATTEND IT IS THEREFORE OBLIGATORY THAT YOU WORK FOR AXEL SPRINGER OR A SUBSIDERY.
The finale of the hackday is a presentation at the CXO Summit. You might get lucky and if you are doin’ it right win one of our amazing prizes or even get funding to develop your hack into a new full fledged product.
This years topic: REINVENT THE FAMILY BUSINESS! Develop a new solution for one of Axel Springer’s businesses (not the one you normally work for!), find a new angle for it, combine it with other resources from the web, add a fresh touch or simply disrupt the whole industry!
