Hatch brings technologies from innovative companies globally to trailblaze innovations for public safety and security. Hatch is established by Singapore’s Home Team Science and Technology (HTX) as an innovation hub for public safety and security, in collaboration with SOSA and Knovel Engineering.

Dimension X is our open innovation challenge that accelerates and validates technologies from innovative start-ups with dual-use potential for public safety and security. Start-ups participating in the challenge will receive a non-dilutive fund of SGD100K, to develop a Proof-of-Concept (POC) in collaboration with Home Team end-users and HTX’s scientists/engineers, to validate their technologies for public safety and security use case.
