Follow-up Optional Helpdesk 30-min sessions with Colin and Jan on Thursday 28 Oct (advance booking required).
You can also bring with you your current brand assets (logos, photos, videos, etc) for a review. Book your session here.


16.00. Software Prototyping for Founders with Su Yuen Chin, Vivita SG and MoMo Central

Startup founders do not need to be a software developer, but they should know enough to make good decisions and speak the same language as their technical team. For hardware startups, scalability is inextricably linked to making your product intelligent, which requires three key software layers – collecting and analysing data, controls, and the user interface. This introductory session is for startup founders who want to understand what software can do for you, and how to get started building your software team.

Follow-up Optional Helpdesk 30-min sessions on Friday 22 Oct (advance booking required)


17.00. Hardware Prototyping for Founders with Wouter van Hest and Jiawei Lim, AUDACITY’S Resident Innovators

Building hardware will always be difficult. Yet, from carbon capture to space travel to food resilience, many real world problems require physical tangible solutions. The good news is that with rapid prototyping technologies and services abound, hardware development has never been easier and more accessible. This session aims to re-establish the basics of understanding prototyping and problem solving from a sector-agnostic hardware perspective.
