    • Roving facilitators to help with your prototypes

    We're open to teams forming before the event, but you could also sign-up as an individual to from a team on the morning of Day 1. Hackathons are specially designed to embrace diversity, creating a conducive environment for anyone to turn their prototypes into companies. So give it a go, you'll never know what your team will end up brewing.



    • Win cash prizes of up to $3,000 per category
    • An all-expenses paid lunch with an established restauranteur

    Win or lose, we are certain that new lessons will be learnt, limits will be pushed, and new friendships will be formed! Join us for experiential learning, networking and building your personal brand. Who knows, it might just be the seeding ground for your own business!


    Just a Note: Staying over at this hackathon is optional. But if you'd like to hack through the night, we'll have a room set-aside just for resting. And snacks + coffee, of course :)
