The best part about organising events in Singapore is meeting amazing people, and creating something people genuinely care about and want to participate in.

The thorn in our flesh when organising events is getting sponsors onboard but we nipped it in the bud through growing our reputation as a great value-added partner.

Singapore techie hackathons are #HomeGrownSG to me!
