Got an idea to address the emerging social needs of seniors and caregivers in Singapore? We want to help you make it happen.
The LeapForGood 2018 Hackathon is designed to help you develop the best version of your idea before your submission on 22 April.
It is a weekend-long event where innovators will come together in teams to develop their innovative ideas into pitch-ready social enterprise business canvases.
The Hackathon will feature a full network of experts, mentors, and your peers who will collectively help you enhance your idea, as well as a range of activities that will help you think in the entrepreneurial mindset.
Break down your idea, articulate it as a proper social enterprise, and pressure-test it against the ideas of your peers! Get the expert opinion of mentors from the industry to shape your idea further.
Whether you have a social enterprise idea to be developed, or just want to get involved and solve a challenging problem with your skills, we want you at the hackathon. You can register with your team, or if you don't have one, we'll help you find a team at the hackathon itself.
Top three winning teams will receive:
- Cash prizes up to S$1,000 per team;
- A three-month social enterprise membership at LEVEL3
- The chance to be fast-tracked to the next stage of LeapForGood and prototype their solutions!
Join us and come one step closer to winning up to S$100,000 in grants and bringing your social enterprise idea to life!
