Happening this IPSMART, this hackathon will connect participants with mentors, investors and government agencies with an aim to encourage great outcomes in the few specific tracks that could potentially be implemented within the region. 

So what is a Hackathon? It’s a 30 hour work session that starts from Saturday, 18 of August to Sunday 19 of August, with a target of 100 participants from Malaysia & Singapore, where they will be working in teams, running three specialised tracks, Cashless Society, Social Impact and General Tracks.  Beginning on Saturday, attendees will form their team and start curating the best business idea. 

Over the weekend, teams focus on brainstorming, business plan development, and basic prototype creation. All the team will be sharing prototypes and receive valuable feedback from a panel of experts on Sunday evening presentations. 

What will you get from attending – An awesome coaching by industry leaders from JB, KL & Singapore. A network of new developer, designer & entrepreneur friends that are also excited about entrepreneurship in Johor and a total cash prize of RM20,000.00 to be won!

The weekend will be centered around action, innovation, and education. Whether you are looking for feedback on an idea, a co-founder, specific skill sets, or a team to help you execute, Hackathon is the perfect environment in which to test your idea and take the first steps towards launching your own startup.
