Who are the developers?
Developers will be selected from a pool of contestants who have demonstrated both the technical skills necessary to succeed, as well as substantive knowledge and experience in the issue area under consideration.
How does the challenge work for the developers?
Developer teams selected for the APEC Challenge will come from economies across the region. They will have three months to develop their understanding of the issue area. In the lead-up to the event, the Asia Foundation will support an online discussion and mentorship process, including a series of online video calls to give finalists an opportunity to discuss their ideas with each other. To preserve the excitement of a typical app challenge, teams will be given the core challenge in advance but will be given the final information needed to build an app during a 24-hour coding period.
Who will own the winning app?
As is standard with app challenges, the developers would retain ownership and rights in relation to the app. APEC would have the right to reference the app and its support for the challenge.
What is the prize?
The winning team will be given a prize of USD3,000 and an exclusive training session with an online export growth expert. There will also be prizes for the second and third placed teams. An ‘APEC Digital Prosperity Award’ will also be made for the most innovative, workable app. The APEC Digital Prosperity Award spotlights an outstanding new digital product that uses innovation to increase prosperity and inclusive growth across economies in the Asia Pacific region. Last year this was also awarded to the winner of the challenge, which enabled a larger roll-out of the app.
