If you like Shark Tank and have a heart for social good, this is for you. Singapore National Co-operative Federation (SNCF) is excited to announce the return of Creathon 2022!
Following its previous successes, Creathon 2022, the only co-operative social enterprise challenge, is back for its third run. This time, it is expected to see even more teams competing with one another as they develop innovative solutions to address social challenges around us.
From today to November 30, 2021, registration for Creathon 2022 will open. Interested parties can head here to sign up.
Whether you are a student, a fresh graduate, or have been employed for a while, the competition serves to be an incubator where you ignite your creative juices, formulate solutions to tackle real social problems and kickstart your dreams.
Interested citizens (Singaporeans and Permanent Residents) should form a team, comprising only 4-5 people, for Creathon 2022. They can choose to register under the Student Category (for youths aged 17-26 years old as of 2022) or Open Category (for anyone aged between 17 and 35 years old).
Once registered, teams will proceed to the Preliminary round, and they will then be tasked to send in video applications of their ideas. These video applications will be judged by a panel of SNCF staff members based on their creativity and the feasibility of the solutions.
10 shortlisted teams, five from each category, will advance to the FINALS taking place at Hilton Hotel on 22 January 2022, where they will be invited to compete with one another and impress a panel of guest judges.
Throughout, teams will receive exclusive mentorship too.
Winning team will get to take home $10,000* seed funding and cash prize.
