Through 10 exciting challenge statements across three themes, Singapore Airlines is calling out to all startups and scaleups from around the world to participate in the AppChallenge 2021 – Startup Track.
Whether you hail from New York, Beijing, Jakarta or anywhere in between, if your digital solution has the potential for the airline to lead the new world, you should submit an application. The FTE Innovation & Startup Hub is proud to once again be a Community Partner of the SIA AppChallenge.
