BOOTCAMP SESSIONS

11th - 21st May 2020

Application Closed
Technology varying from Deep Learning, Artificial Intelligence, Machine Learning, Big Data, 5G, AR/VR, Robotics, Automation, Genome Sequencing, Nanotech and others are significant enabling mechanisms that can accelerate the process of obtaining expeditious results in key sectors such as Healthcare, Agriculture, Supply Chain, Education and more.

The question now is, how can we use Deep Technology and create innovative solutions to battle the COVID-19 pandemic (or any other potential pandemic-level diseases and/or economic crises) in different sectors?

Tech founders are given the opportunity to refine their ideas into stronger and workable business pitches. Getting feedback from client/user perspectives is key to developing your startup. You will learn through a structured learning process on how to validate, develop and turn your idea into a working prototype with a proven business model. Ultimately, commercialization is the goal that must be in the founders’ minds by then.
