What would you do if you had S$1 million to invest in a solution to make cities more sustainable?Would you choose to back greener batteries for electric vehicles? Develop a new supermaterial to replace plastic? Or a paint that keeps cars, buildings and ships cool all day long?

Following a 5-month journey and beating more than 300 other applicants, finalists will fight to convince a panel of Asia's most renowned investors and changemakers that they deserve the ultimate prize of up to S$1 million in grant funding and other exclusive opportunities.

Who will walk away as the Grand Winner of The Liveability Challenge 2019? Come witness history in the making on 7 June,3pm at Marina Bay Sands.

Hear from the region's leading opinion leaders in innovation and venture capitalism at an intimate fireside chat at the event, and network with 200 C-suite/senior leaders from the finance, business and policy sectors.

4.55 pm - Panel Discussion: Hope or Hype? Scaling disruptive tech for impact
Rapid change calls for rapid disruption, and no sector embodies the spirit of innovation and transformation than tech start-ups. Pioneering unicorns like Grab and Airbnb have demonstrated how quickly societies can adapt to new ways of doing things by working with popular opinion, not against. But disruption doesn't necessarily lead to positive change. The successive collapse of bike-sharing companies, once hailed a green force for good, has led to massive waste and a return to old, polluting ways of transport.

In a sector rife with hope and hype, is technological disruption leading us to a better future? What are the risks of rapid social and technological transformation, and how can we innovate and scale to achieve the impact we need? With 12 years to avoid sealing our fate of runaway climate change, how do we deploy technology for the greatest good with the least social disruption?
