TAKEOFF TOKYO  Builders Weekend 2024

April 9, 2024

Takeoff Tokyo is not just a single conference, but an ecosystem of related events happening over the course of several weeks.
One of these is the Builders Weekend, a 48-hour hackathon. This year it hosted over 80 participants as well as 20 partners and co-organizers at the Golden Egg in Shibuya, Tokyo.

The Event

Builders Weekend kicked off with an opening ceremony and welcome on Friday evening, after which participants formed teams and began working on their projects.
Saturday and Sunday saw each team furiously developing their ideas, staying up late into the night to work on ideas and code. On Sunday each team presented their projects and a winner was announced.
