“Prototyping” is an activity where teams will build a basic design or “wireframe” to show the possible solutions to solve the business problems, before investing lots of resources into the product. A lot of companies, especially in the tech industry, are encouraging teams to build prototypes, so that businesses can see the potential solutions, learn quickly of what’s working and what’s not working, fail quickly, and move on.

Who Can Participate

When you register, you have two options:

1. Register as an individual and get placed into a team

2. Register with your friends in a team of 3 - 5 people.

There are a few ways to form a team if you don’t have one; we will randomly assign you to a team after the registration closing date, or you may feel free to look for team members by posting on our Facebook event page or through our Discord platform. You will get the access to Discord after registration.

Simply form your team through your Eventbrite account; this can be found under the "Order Details" of your "Tickets" page. Team Captains may add members up to a maximum of 5 members! Those who do not have a team may join or form new teams.

Teams that do not have at least THREE members by the registration closing date will be randomly assigned team members.

Fun Tip: Teams that have performed well in the past have had diverse members from both technology and business backgrounds.
