The Sky's Not the Limit: Singapore Airlines' Bold Challenge to Startups

Ever dreamt of leaving a mark in the aviation world? Well, Singapore Airlines just dropped a golden ticket. They're not looking for the next Willy Wonka; they're on the hunt for startups with game-changing ideas. And guess what? They're willing to reward you with a whopping 330,000 KrisFlyer miles. That's enough to make anyone's head spin faster than a plane's propeller!

What's the Buzz About?

Singapore Airlines, the flag carrier of the tiny red dot known as Singapore, is no stranger to innovation. This time, they're throwing down the gauntlet with their AppChallenge 2023. They're not just looking for any solution; they want something that'll redefine aviation and the travel experience. Think you've got what it takes?

The Nitty-Gritty Details

Startups from all corners of the globe are invited. Whether you're just starting out or scaling up, if your digital solution can give the aviation and travel experience a facelift, they want to hear from you. And if you make it to the top, you'll get to fly to Singapore (on their dime, of course) and pitch your idea to a panel of judges. But that's not all. Selected finalists will get to co-create a funded proof-of-concept with the SIA group subsidiaries. Talk about a win-win!

Themes to Tackle

They've laid out four key themes:

  1. Seamless Customer Experience: Got solutions that address evolving traveler needs?
  2. People Operations: Can you boost staff operational efficiency with tech?
  3. Beyond Travel: Ideas that explore opportunities outside of aviation and travel.
  4. Wild Cards: This is where things get spicy. If your solution doesn't fit the above categories, fret not. They're open to ideas in artificial intelligence, the metaverse, extended reality, or any other groundbreaking proposal you might have.

The Grand Prize

The top-voted startup finalists will bag up to 330,000 KrisFlyer miles per team. If you're not familiar with KrisFlyer miles, let's just say they're your ticket to free flights, hotel stays, car rentals, and some unique experiences that money can't buy.

The Timeline

Startups have until 24 September 2023 to submit their proposals. Those who make the cut will be invited for a virtual pitch session between 25 September and 20 October 2023. The grand finale? That's set for 19 January 2024, where finalists will pitch to the SIA senior management.

In Conclusion

If you're a startup with a groundbreaking idea that can shake up the aviation and travel industry, this is your chance. With Singapore Airlines backing you, the sky's not the limit; it's just the beginning.
