Pre-Events

The Event

InAct is a 2-day intensive workshop involving interdisciplinary collaboration of students to contribute towards social innovation using technology for the humanitarian challenge proposed. After the screening, the final selected teams will be assigned a respective domain expert. They will guide the teams towards a solution on the humanitarian challenges provided by THE Port and the domain experts. This month-long preparatory phase will culminate into a 48 hours final hackathon to build working prototypes and tangible solutions.

Inspired from THE Port’s philosophy of “maximizing the chances” that the project continues after the hackathon. For further details, please refer the InAct deck
