In 2022 Microsoft was our main partner and provided the challenge and the technical infrastructure for the participants to upload and present their unique solutions to the issue.

In 2023 we were happy to have MHL, Junction, Check24, Crossbuilders and Sipgate as partners that made the biggest Ideahack! ever possible.
