About the Organisers

This collaboration allows more Brands to support development opportunities to fearless Singapore university undergraduates, regardless of their background, to take on tough enterprise challenges via interdisciplinary approach.
Merdeka Collective was created for one purpose - our Singaporean dream to be free and prosper for the generations to come. We want to strive for the better, with the spirit of Semangat - the ownership to survive, succeed in any circumstances and to rise to greater heights. Merdeka Collective is an initiative under Tasek Jurong, with the support of Founding Patron Mr Tharman Shanmugaratnam and Advisor Member of Parliament Shawn Wei Zhong Huang.
Design Prodigy is a B2B enterprise marketing agency that focuses on developing future ready talents to take on tough challenges. The agency has serviced Fortune 500 clients like SAP, Randstad, Citrix, Equinix, Lumen Technologies and Becton Dickinson.
The agency was founded by Marc Goh. Inspired by applied polymathy, he started "Ungoogleable Challenge Internship" in 2017, specializing in experiential learning through interdisciplinary problem solving. The internship attracted the brightest and most fearless undergraduates from top local university programs including the NUS University Scholars Programme, NTU, SMU and more.
In the past few Ungoogleable Challenge final presentations, we have been grateful to have senior executive leaders from Microsoft, SAP, Randstad, Citrix, Equinix, Kyndryl, Becton Dickinson, A*STAR and many more to engage the undergraduates in the finals. The engaging and enriching discussions we have are deeply appreciated by interns and attendees alike.
