Many people have great ideas for solutions to problems that the world faces today. However, they may not have access to the tools, equipment, compute, data or resources required to build even a prototype of the solution. Applied Singularity and Mouser Electronics, the leading global electronics components distributor, have come together to address this issue by launching this Deep Tech Ideathon, a community support initiative. You get to keep 100% of the intellectual property (IP) you build!
