Follow the MakerBay team that has been trained directly from the source: the Stanford School of Design and learn to collaborate, systematically come up with new ideas, and also prototype and test them!

Public speaking is a singular source of anxiety for those competing in pitching competitions.

To prepare you for the presentation at the Hackathon Day, we are inviting JP Stevenson, business model innovation advisor to Fung Group companies. He also successfully led numerous teams in global pitching competitions, including Google & University of Southern California's Global Consulting Challenge, which his team won in 2016.
