Back and front-end deployment by a dedicated Omdena team.
FAQ. Questions we have answers to.
When is the Omdena Challenge a good fit for you?
You have unknowns in the path to build your AI solution:
- Getting more data and not knowing where to get the data
- Overcoming complex technical challenges
- Testing different approaches or algorithms to solve the problem
Can I hire engineers from the Challenge?
Yes, once the project ends, you own all the IP from the challenge. Either you take all the data and code and continue the work on your own, or hire collaborators from the challenge, or continue to work with us through a smaller team of 1-5 engineers.
It happens very often that the startup decides to send a job offer to the people that have shined during the 8 weeks. We know that it is actually the best way to hire skilled and motivated AI engineers if you are planning to expand your team.
How does the project management work?
We assign a Product Lead who will oversee the team and manage the expectations from your side. The person will also keep you updated with the progress. You will also have access to a dedicated Slack Channel, where you can constantly interact with the team during the project.
In addition, you are updated on the project progress in the following ways:
- Weekly calls where the task leaders present an update
- A mid-check after four weeks
- Final presentation and report at the end of the project

How to get started. Walkthrough.
You submit your envisioned project scope for the Challenge. If the scope is feasible, we share an agreement with you which includes the project fee, start date, and deliverables. Next, we schedule a call to align on all details and sign the agreement.
An agreement template can be read here.
Together with you, Omdena´s Head of Projects discusses the project execution, timeline, and project scope in detail.
During the kick-off call, you present the problem to the engineers and answer their questions.
The project officially starts after the kick-off. Omdena collaborators break down the problem into subtasks. In the weekly task call, every task team presents the progress made – the partner is free to join but the whole process is managed by an Omdena Project Manager and Product Owner.
At the end of the 8-weeks project, we present the final work. Here is an example of the final deliverable with all the deliverables from a challenge. You can also check the Github repository and the data collected. If agreed on previously in the contract, you will be the owner of all IP.
We will assign 1 or 2 Engineers at the end of the 8-weeks project to work on the integration/deployment of the solution for 2 weeks.
We also deploy solutions as part of the 8-week challenges. You can check some examples via https://omdena.com/deployments/
