Applied Singularity Deep Tech Ideathon

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, came together to address this issue by launching this Deep Tech Ideathon, a community support initiative. Participants got to keep 100% of the intellectual property (IP) they built!

Domains and Technologies

The Deep Tech Ideathon invited solution ideas in the below domains/areas:

  1. Agriculture and farming
  2. Healthcare
  3. Transportation
  4. Industrial/Enterprise automation
  5. Finance
  6. Security
  7. Other – any other domain that you want a build a solution for

The solution prototype had to utilise one or more of the below technologies to achieve its stated objective:

  1. Internet of Things (IoT)
  2. Robotics
  3. Artificial Intelligence (AI)


This ideathon was open to all. Participants were invited to fill out the application form with details about what they wanted to build. They could participate in the ideathon as an individual or as a team of up to 4 people. Multiple ideas were welcome too.

Prizes and Benefits

This ideathon provided a prize pool of INR 60,000 worth prototyping grants, plus benefits such as mentoring and recognition on public forums. There was also an exciting referral prize for those who actively shared this opportunity with colleagues and peers!

4 deserving ideas for solutions that were feasible, impactful, innovative and presented well received prototyping grants of INR 15,000 each to bring the idea to life. We congratulate the teams and individuals who won the contests and wish them best of luck in bringing their ideas to life!
