Opening progressively from 2023, the Punggol Digital District (PDD) will be Singapore’s first ‘Enterprise District’. With shared spaces between industry, academia and Punggol residents, this new learning and economic hub will create brand new opportunities for collaboration and open innovation.

The Singapore Institute of Technology (SIT) will bring unique applied learning experiences to their students and the broader community. The surrounding business park

developed by JTC will house 28,000 digital economy jobs. PDD is set to be a thriving business and learning ecosystem. Beyond serving the functional needs of students, workers, and residents, how can we create a unique experience for learning, working, and living in PDD?

The Punggol Digital District Hackathon is your opportunity to not only imagine, but also shape the digital district of the future. We want you to join us and co-create solutions to invent the future, together.
