What The Hack 2017, organised by the Singapore University of Technology and Design, kicked off on 30 September 2017, bringing together people of multiple disciplines and providing them with the resources to jumpstart their ideas.

During the 24-hour hackathon, participants tackled wicked, tough and abstract problems with the tools that they had at hand. They then produced a working prototype (software, hardware or both) that helped them showcase or explain ideas.

The HEAD Foundation (THF) proudly supported What The Hack 2017 as the Platinum Sponsor, and was part of the judging panel. Vignesh Naidu, Research and Project Manager at The HEAD Foundation, was part of the judging panel and represented THF in presenting the prizes sponsored by the Foundation to the winning participants on 1 October 2017.
