TechLaunch is an unconference around NUS technology, an ideation venue for imagineers, inventors, makers, developers, hackers, self-starters, entrepreneurs and people with great doses of curiosity and mental wanderlust. At TechLaunch you will have the opportunity to mingle with creatives playing with the latest NUS IT technologies.
The event has two main parts. TechLaunch starts off with a casual event networking and team formation, followed by idea drafting. In the second part, teams will work on an idea to transform NUS technologies into products or services. The best team which successfully turns the NUS technologies into real products or services will be awarded with attractive prizes from Microsoft, Research in Motion, as well as Amazon Web Services.
On top of the team formation and pitching, TechLaunch will also showcase a range of technologies in the fields of data mining, semantic analysis, image and video analysis, biometrics, interactive video, e-business, fashion, e-health, gaming, surveillance and many others.
