Launch (1 September 2018)
Kickstart the hackathon with a 2-hr session where you will hear from our Community Partners as they talk through the challenge statements. This would be the best opportunity for you to understand the challenge statements and the profile of the beneficiaries. We will also have a design thinking workshop and team formation during this date!

Hack (8 to 9 September 2018)
Hack over a period of 36 hours at the JTC launchpad. There will be a variety of workshops and mentors to help and guide you as you develop your business plan and solution prototype. Top 5 winning teams will be chosen and stand a chance to walk away with some attractive prizes!

Launch into a Social Enterprise!
Top 5 winning teams will be given S$5,000 each to develop your prototype into a minimum viable product over a period of 4 months! You get to be mentored by Quest Venture, Ace, and other mentors!

Finally, a grand prize awaits and outstanding teams will be given the rare opportunity to be groomed into the next start-up under the SG Startup Founder Grant!
