Gapstars AI Day

We hosted the inaugural Gapstars AI Day in June this year, marking our first step towards becoming more digitally sustainable as we embrace the technology of the future.

Our AI Day followed a competition format which prompted participating teams to come up with an AI-powered use case that would serve as a solution to everyday business problems. We were proud to witness our participants inventing ideas that would help to enhance the platforms that they are working on for our Partners.

A huge shout out goes to our winning teams!

• 1st Place: Team Fixico
