The Sparkboard is the web platform developed and made available for free by Open Geneva. This tool allows the promotion of hackathons, facilitates the organization of hackathons for the organizers, the follow-up of the projects born from these events, as well as the direct connection between innovators and acceleration programs in the Lake Geneva region.

If you wish to organize an event/hackathon using the platform, please write to

Once your space is created on the sparkboard, you can take it in hand independently.

Communication & Visibility

A project doesn't exist if you don't talk about it. Whether it is within the community of innovators, in the media, or with acceleration partners, the project must be visible to find resources, whether technical, financial, human, logistical, etc., to support it.

Each month, a newsletter is sent to the network of innovation actors, innovators, supporters and partners of Open Geneva. This communication aims to present and follow innovation projects born from hackathons, announce events related to innovation in Geneva (hackathons, conferences, workshops...).
