Porsche – Visionary Sponsor
Thank you so much for supporting us for the first time as Visionary Sponsor at the 2019 Hackathon Stuttgart! We’re looking forward to the cooperation and to the new input you are bringing for our hackers.
Be curious what Porsche will provide during 25.-27. October 2019! Here you can read some facts about the company:
What we do
Porsche is based in Stuttgart-Zuffenhausen. We have been building sports cars for passionate customers from across the globe for over 70 years.
In 2018, more than 32,300 employees helped to generate 25.8 billion euros in turnover and an operating profit of 4.3 billion euros.
Our vision is to become the most successful brand for exclusive and sporty mobility. This is why we are investing a lot in digitalization, connectivity and new mobility concepts. In 2019, Porsche’s first fully electric sports car, the Taycan, will be launched.
In 2025, we expect that at least every second new Porsche will be equipped with an electric drive system, either as a hybrid or as a pure electric vehicle.
The sports car of the future will blend the history and values of the Porsche brand with innovative technologies, while at the same time ensuring sustainability.
Why we attend the 2019 Hackathon Stuttgart
“In the beginning I looked around and could not find quite the car I dreamed of. So I decided to build it myself.” – Ferry Porsche
Ferdinand Anton Ernst Porsche – or Ferry Porsche for short – who created the very first sports car to bear the Porsche name was a visionary. His statement has been our guiding principle for more than 70 years and we continue to set our hearts and minds to it.
To realize our vision of the sports car of the future, we are always looking for more ideas per kilometer. The Hackathon Stuttgart embraces the development of ideas in many areas that Porsche incorporates into its strategy. Topics such as cloud, mobile, and mobility are excellent fields of innovation for a hackathon and beyond. For this reason, it is with great pleasure that we support this year’s Hackathon in the city that we call our home.
What we expect
At the event, we expect to meet a lot of tech-savvy people that share our passion for creating new ideas. Whether you are an expert in a particular industry or not, we love to hear your opinion about what you consider the next big thing in the context of automotive and mobility.
Perhaps it only takes a small spark from a conversation with us to improve an existing idea or start developing something new. We like to have these conversations and get things rolling with you.
