12 Nov 2014

Dr Huynh Phung Huynh and his team won first place in both the SingTel Accelerator Challenge, and the SingTel-Samsung Accelerator Challenge. As winners, his technology will go on to compete with other winning team from Indonesia, Thailand, Philippines and Australia in the finals to be held later in November 2014.

Organised by SingTel, the challenge is aimed at incubating the next big killer app for consumers.

Justgola is a smart trip planning app for the web or mobile devices that helps plan travel activities. This includes the automatic or semi-automatic generation of an itinerary that matches the traveller’s time, budget and interests.

With huge commercialisation potential, Justgola can be a spontaneous travel planner to assist travellers from pre-trip planning to on-trip traveling, and after-trip sharing.

The win was covered by online media such as Baomai, TalkVietnam and TuoiTreNews on 12 Nov 2014.
