Hackathon is back!

​Accelerate25 will again be sponsoring the AgTech Hackathon – connecting tech talent to primary industry opportunities. During New Zealand AgriFood Week, teams work with primary sector representatives and mentors to solve set challenges over 28 hours. It’s action packed and inspiring!
Participants travel from all over the country to get involved, network, share ideas and collaborate. This year, five sector challenges have been released, incorporating water management, horticulture, dairy, connected farm and forestry.

​The hacking itself will be held at Massey University, followed by presentations and awards at the Central Districts Field Days. The presentations are a fantastic opportunity to learn about the teams’ solutions, get some insight into their thought processes and of course celebrate the winners.
