About the Innovation Challenge
Crowdsourcing @ TechInnovation 2019 is a unique open innovation platform for large corporations to engage the innovation communities and seek technology solutions and partnerships to solve business challenges.
The Innovation Challenge is a call to action for global startups, SMEs and researchers who have the technology or innovative solution to address the challenges and problem statements issued by our corporate partners taking part in the innovation challenge.
Our corporate partners will also be sharing their challenges and problem statements at the Crowdsourcing segments @ TechInnovation (11 & 12 November). Day 1 will feature corporate partners from diverse sectors ranging from FMCG, Health and Nutrition to Aerospace. Day 2 will feature corporate partners with a focus on Sustainability challenges. Be on the lookout for corporations such as Johnson & Johnson, Danone, Changi Airport Group, Reckitt Benckiser, Rolls Royce, PT Global Urban Essential, Anugrah Argon Medica and more!
