Hack your way to entrepreneurial success! Sponsored and co-organised by Mapletree Investments Pte Ltd, RHBHacks is the first hackathon in River Hongbao's (RHB) 32-year history. The event brought together teams of budding student entrepreneurs from across the country to contest their business ideas in a highly competitive setting. Apart from the top 3 teams who have won their chances to sell their products or services at River Hongbao 2019, the "Most Technovative" and "Most Innovative" teams have also been rewarded for their creativity and ideas.
