Amidst the new norm of Covid-19, where we have had to drastically scale back on face-to-face communication, our bonds still remain strong. We want to continue to build on the ties that bind us, so we can grow stronger and more resilient for the times ahead. Together with the Ministry of Culture, Community, and Youth, we present Mission:Unite, a hackathon to spur youths to identify challenges, and ideate ways to bring about greater social compact.
We’re committed to building a harmonious society that brings people together! And we’re ready to support ideas that can contribute to our mission. All good teams that make it to the grand finals will receive:
- A total of up to SGD300,000 in grant funding for prototype development
- Exposure on international platforms that promote social cohesion
- Mentorship, networks, and co-working space to develop and scale ideas further
Spanning over two weekends, we’re bridging the distance and closing the gap brought about by the COVID-19 pandemic to bring you a virtual and physical hybrid hackathon experience as we hack ideas for cohesion. Leveraging technology platforms and ensuring safe distancing measures, come hack with fellow participants in good faith!
All are welcome to join. If you believe in creating a more gracious world that appreciates our differences and celebrates our similarities no matter the color of our skin or our beliefs, you are the person we’re looking for! This is a safe space for everyone - no experience or prior knowledge required.
