The weekend was busy for Sineflex, as we co-hosted the MedTech Hackathon with Novartis Hyderabad and IIITH-CIE teams. We started with 70 different individuals with 31 ideas on Friday afternoon, that led to 10 ideas with cohesive teams formed at the event, ultimately culminating into resounding success for 4 teams as the hackathon winners.
It was rewarding to see that the planned domain interventions including a mentoring plan, inputs to all teams on their pitch presentations and working with judging panel on the ever-tricky judging process helped the participants, mentors and judges to contribute to the event meaningfully. We of course have several learnings, including an instant feedback from several judges that we should have asked the participants to 'step out' of the hackathon venue to get some real life understanding of the problems they were trying to address. We will continue to reflect further, but for now enjoying the surge in energy from this fantastic event!
