DigitalLife Campus goes to Singapore


 

On the 10th and 11th of November we continued our global hackathon series with the 2nd event in 2017– this time in Singapore. It is the first collaboration of DigitalLife Campus and Startup Autobahn Singapore hosting a Hackathon together, where ideas not only spark from students but also from Startups.

With DigitalLife hackathons we want to break routine by exploring sideways from the standard company structure allowing innovation to occur in an environment where pretty much everything is possible. Startup Autobahn Singapore is a corporate accelerator program powered by Mercedes-Benz. It is located in Block 71, where you find more than 200 startups and companies like google, Microsoft, IBM are also setting their footprint in as partners.

In the aim of looking for the innovative ideas and scouting to the young entrepreneurs, Hack.Singapore took place in Block 71 Singapore. With panel discussions, industry leader presentation, students and startup teams iterating their ideas for 48 hours, it has been an exciting Hackathon indeed.

With DigitalLife@Daimler we bundle the company-wide digitalization activities at Daimler and initiate new projects and formats to push digital transformation and a new culture of innovation.
