How can you contribute?

Buy your rubber duck in the reception



Racing ducks are for sale for 350 NOK at the Service Desk in the reception area. ALL of the money goes directly to Ung Kreft.


Don't have money? Bring your own duck!
There are also other opportunities to fundraise without giving us your hard-earned cash, such as making a bracelet or two at the “F*ck Cancer” workshop table.

Duck Augmention Station

Modify your duck at HardwareLab

We timed the ducks natural capability to cross the pond outside IFI, and there's NO WAY you are going to win this without modding your duck.


The race will start at 13:30, but make sure to show up earlier to register your duck, enjoy something delicious to eat and have time to modify, pimp, augment or "Quack Hack" your duck for the win at our Duck Augmentation Station hosted by HardwareLab.

Our startups are kick-ass at fundraising and have decided that once a year we will be harnessing our superpowers to fundraise for charity. This year we have chosen Ung Kreft as the recipient of all proceeds from this year’s event. Please check out their website to read about the amazing work they do to support young cancer victims (15-35yrs) and their loved ones.
