Innovation Thursday

Are you an innovator or company with digital technology capabilities? Keen to access real business needs and co-create with potential customers?

Join us for our third Innovation Thursday event happening on 16th August at PIXEL. This fortnightly series of events held at IMDA’s PIXEL will bring together tech innovators and companies to discover new opportunities and connect with potential partners.

At this event, you’ll get to learn about IMDA’s new Open Innovation Platform – a virtual crowdsourcing platform that matches challenges of Problem Owners to Problem Solvers. The OIP will be going live with the first Innovation Call with more than 10 challenges from different Problem Owners. Hear directly from the Problem Owners about their challenges, what they are looking for, and what opportunities they offer to collaborate with potential solvers.
