About this event

Digital Penang is launching our very first inaugural online hackathon that will take place virtually on Zoom and Discord over a span of several weeks with a prize pool of more than RM100,000 in cash prizes, cloud services and API credits!

The theme of the hackathon is financial technology. Make something people want. We are open to any good ideas and solutions.

Get access to fintech APIs provided by Finexus. Hear from TNG Digital and learn about their mini apps programs to turn your ideas into a reality.

Build, hack, and win.


There will only be 10 winning teams with the best, most innovative, and viable solutions. All participants with interesting ideas will also be eligible for a fast-track lane into Finexus' partnership program and Digital Penang's Basic Living Entrepreneurship Support Scheme (BLESS) which provides a 6-month stipend for startups, founders, and entrepreneurs to build and grow their business.

Digital Penang also provides cloud credits for AWS (USD$5000) and Freshworks (USD$4000) for eligible startups, and coworking incentives for startups based in or relocating to Penang!
