After 3 days of consistent deliberations and collaborations, the 2022 cohort of National Service Personnel presented their software products on the final pitch day of their hackathon.
The hackathon, themed “Technological Innovations to accelerate the SDGs” was organized to promote innovation in the tech ecosystem among the young ones, and nurture their ability to leverage software solutions to solve everyday problems.
The NSPs were tasked to produce tech solutions under selected SDGs, specifically:
- Good health and wellbeing
- Quality education
- Zero Hunger with a focus on agriculture solutions
- No poverty with a focus on fin-tech solutions.
All teams displayed great collaborative, innovative and creative skills from ideation through to their presentation of their software products.
Judges were generally impressed with their products, and for the vast majority of NSPs who participated in the hackathon, the training they had under our Digital Innovation Programme made them best-suited for the challenge and inspired them to give out their best.
