With over one-third of the population on lockdown due to the COVID19 crisis, numerous jobs, lives, the economy and our future are at stake. 2020 has panned out in a way that nobody has expected and could predict.

This pandemic will forever change the way we imagine how we would live, play and work in the next decade, and our generation is not yet ready to live with these changes.

Join the Global Movement
For the first time ever, Startup Weekend Singapore is joining the Techstars global movement to host a Global Online Startup Weekend alongside 60 countries around the world. This series of virtual Startup Weekends will be focused on tackling issues from the COVID19 pandemic and developing solutions unique to each country.

Startup Weekend Singapore 2020
This coming 24-26 April, we’re inviting innovators, developers, inventors, and anyone with a passion to help solve this crisis to join us for a 54 hour weekend to hack ideas that will shape the next decade. Participants will work together from their homes and tackle the challenges presented by the pandemic, and develop prototypes that can help solve some of the biggest issues faced by Singaporeans and our neighbours from this crisis.

It’s the same Startup Weekend Singapore you know and love, but this time, we’re going online.

If you’ve ever been to Startup Weekend Singapore, you know it’s one of the most thrilling and amazing 54 hours you can imagine. You’ll experience the highs, lows, fun, and pressures that make up life at a startup. As you work, you’ll meet some of the very best mentors in the region - from founders to chief architects, investors and corporate chiefs — all who are ready to work with our participants to take their idea forward. Successful founders that have come out of Startup Weekend Singapore include Carousell, Shopback, Policypal and Anywhr.

Our upcoming Startup Weekend Singapore 2020 takes the best of our in-person experience and amplifies it with the scope and reach of the best digital tools available.

We’re calling all developers, designers, marketers, nurses, doctors, students, scientists, business owners, teachers and anyone with an idea to tackle the challenges created by the global pandemic. This is your chance to join forces with thousands of people from dozens of countries and truly make a difference.

This event is not only about bringing together developers who can work on software-based solutions for the crisis. It’s an opportunity for everyone interested in the topic to inspire and be inspired and to work together on developing inclusive solutions.
