He also offered some tips to startups who are planning to apply: “Startups who are able to contextualise their solutions and the benefits to the challenge statements team stand out from other participants. The AppChallenge team is also providing early feedback for those who submitted their solution before the closing date to help participants to fine-tune their solution. We are looking forward to the startups’ innovative solutions!”
