The hackathon budget

This is the final budget. It has 3 columns, one in EUR (€), one in USD ($), and one in GBP (£).

All columns are important, as we are given estimates and donations in all currencies. Our bank account is in EUR, but our PayPal account handles the three currencies. The final budget might include additional conversion fees taken by banks and other intermediates.

In the end, payments have been made only in EUR (€) and USD ($). Incomes in GBP (£) have been all transfered into $, some € (on Paypal account) too.
Some travel refunds in $ (in the data below) have been paid in € (as the Paypal account in $ was empty).

A more detailed financial report is available in PDF.


The only income of the hackathon comes from our generous sponsors. Individuals can also donate using PayPal. Thanks a lot!

Announced but unpaid sponsorship are highlighted italics.

Some of our sponsors made in-kind donations instead of or in addition to contributing financially to the budget.
