ENABLING THE GIG ECONOMY TO SOLVE UNEMPLOYMENT

Hackathons are increasingly practiced around the world as a means to accelerate the prototyping of innovative ideas. In the Peninsula’s first-ever hackathon, teams will be given challenges pertaining to the local jobs situation and be encouraged to look at trends in the Gig Economy and Future of Work to hack solutions to be implemented immediately by local stakeholders.

Teams of up to 4 participants will be required to build a solution to a complex problem in 48 hours and pitch their ideas to a panel of judges, with the winning teams receiving a part of up to $6,000 in funding.
