Ascend supports Social Innovation Hackathon in Bamberg with technical equipment

Nuremberg, January 2020

Last year, the Advent season was once again a time of social commitment and good deeds. In Bamberg, bytabo® GmbH jointly organized the
Together with the Caritasverband für die Erzdiözese Bamberg e.V., we invited 50 young programmers, creative minds and interested parties to solve five tasks to make Bamberg even more liveable. In order to meet the various challenges digitally, an appropriate technical WLAN solution was required in the area of event IT - this was provided to the enthusiastic volunteers by ASCEND, IT system house for companies, guests & events.

Mobile router from Peplink, model HD4, with three SIM cards inserted and connected. The device has mobile phone antennas and WiFi antennas, both of which are connected. A sticker with the ASCEND logo is clearly visible on the device.
"We are delighted with the successful event and the great support from ASCEND," says Meike Gleiß from bytabo® GmbH. The projects that were worked on intensively included
  • the "Bamama" campaign, which needs an Internet portal that provides mothers with a migration background with the most important information about pregnancy and motherhood in Germany in simple words and pictures - for example, about free preventive examinations that are not available in other countries.
  • the "Bambecher - less waste in Bamberg" campaign, which has set itself the ambitious goal of completely ridding Bamberg of discarded coffee-to-go cups by 2023 with new logistics and marketing strategies
  • the "Bambike - Bamberg Bike Sharing" campaign, which aims to make bicycles available free of charge throughout Bamberg and have them repaired by AEO helpers to enable sustainability and relieve traffic congestion
  • "Gaia - Tinder dir Dein Ehrenamt", a portal that uses a short online questionnaire to match committed people with the right volunteer position and
  • Josefslädchen and "Freund statt fremd", which are also looking for volunteers and are looking for digital ways to find people willing to help
Even though the projects could not be developed to market maturity in the 10 hours that the Social Innovation Hackathon lasted, the final presentations showed great results. The winning group was awarded a voucher for a digital detox weekend in Franconian Switzerland. "Let's hope that the enthusiasm continues beyond the night and that the great projects are completed," says Johannes Fickeis, Managing Director of ASCEND GmbH, a specialist company for event IT and WLAN marketing.
