Travel search engine Skyscanner has launched a competition for developers in Singapore to build a "game-changing" new travel technology product using Skyscanner APIs.

The Build with Skyscanner competition aims to discover product ideas that have the potential to disrupt the travel industry. The competition kicked-off last Wednesday (1 June) and will run until 1 October 2016.

The winners will receive a £1,000 cash price to kick-start their new business. They will also be coached by Skyscanner's CEO and co-founder Gareth Williams, as well as the company's team of engineers, product Managers and growth strategists at Skyscanner's headquarters in Edinburgh, Scotland.

"We are delighted to invite startups and developers to take part in this competition, which we hope will inspire young programmers and businesses to build something truly cutting-edge and bring something fresh to the travel industry. Travel is one the most fascinating industries due to its complexity and size, and I believe there are endless traveler problems still waiting to be solved. With the right drive and a great idea, there are boundless opportunities for trailblazing new products within the travel space," said Williams
