Odyssey Open Innovation Program connects governmental, corporate, and non-profit partners to breakthrough solutions based on blockchain and AI, and fosters the creation of interconnected, multi-stakeholder ecosystems that collaboratively solve complex 21st-century challenges. We mobilize a global community of key stakeholders through a series of events, the world’s biggest blockchain & AI hackathon, and a decentralized incubation program to scale and adopt the best solutions.
Each season, we bring together the essential stakeholders, with whom we articulate complex challenges, exchange knowledge and prepare for the momentum: the 48-hour hackathon, where teams, develop prototype solutions, supported by all program partners, 200+ specialized experts, legal advisors, and financial regulators.
In the past three years, more than 230 working prototypes have emerged from the program, of which 30% are developed further towards adoption or have been adopted. Odyssey is now in its fourth season, with the 2020 edition of the hackathon coming up in April 2020.

The most important thing at the start is to make sure you really believe in what you are trying to achieve and that you are solving a problem that is worth solving. You want to get that fundamental thing so right.
