The Ministry of Science, Technology and Innovation (MOSTI) continues its mission to search for innovative solutions and initiatives that could benefit Keluarga Malaysia through the launch of MYHackathon 2022.

MYHackathon 2022 is a continuation of MYHackathon 2020, an event introduced by Cradle Fund Sdn Bhd (Cradle) which is an agency under MOSTI. The event is also one of the initiatives of the on-going MYStartup Programme. MYHackathon is a platform created for techpreneurs, innovators, software engineers and Malaysians to come up with innovative and technological solution ideas to help improve public services.

According to the Minister of Science, Technology and Innovation, Adham Baba, the 2022 edition of MYHackathon will focus on finding solutions to the country's economic recovery process.

"MYHackathon 2022 is the best platform that provides an opportunity for startup companies, local enterprises, and individuals to offer technological solutions in improving the quality of Government delivery, further highlighting their respective ideas and innovations for commercialisation," he said.

Adham notes that the programme is indirectly related to the food security crisis, which has received special attention from the Malaysian King. “Efforts to deal with this food security crisis become more meaningful if the rakyat join hands and work together in coming up with technology-based solutions," he said, adding that the role played by innovation and creative startups could provide thoughtful solutions to the food security issue.

With the theme ‘Hackathon Nasional Untuk Malaysia Yang Inklusif' (An Inclusive National Malaysian Hackathon), the programme which commences in July consists of two cohorts where each phase will have, as a minimum, five problem statements.
