Hackathon Programme HIGHLIGHT

After the Registration, the top 10 best ideas will be shortlisted to participate in the real hacking to bring ideas to life

A Pre-Hack Workshop will be carried out to prepare the participants with the necessary skills for the prototype development. NB-IoT development kit and IoT cloud platform access will be provided to the participants. Participants may acquire additional sensors and hardware to build the prototype.

The participant will have a month of hacking time to develop the prototype. During the hacking period, periodic progress meeting with industry mentors will be carried out

After 1 month of hacking, the participants will present their prototypes at the Hackathon Final.

The programme then continues with a Post-Hackathon Incubation to nurture the winning teams to be technopreneurs and to refine the prototypes into commercial ready products.
