Around the world more than 30 countries have run online #hackthecrisis events. Now, it's our turn. In collaboration with Callaghan Innovation and startup networks across the country, we're challenging Kiwis to design, test and bring to life innovative ideas for life in New Zealand beyond COVID-19.
Ideas can come from anywhere: we're looking for developers, designers, educators, tradies, students, non-profit organisations, parents, librarians and the list goes on. We are calling all professions and all community members. No one is excluded. We want people to jump in, sleeves rolled up, ready to out think, out design and out manoeuvre this crisis.
Are you ready?
We have some incredible prizes lined up from our sponsors. The top teams will each receive:
- Winning team: $5,000 NZD
- Three runner-ups: $3,000 NZD each
- Free 12-month subscription to MYOB Essentials Accounting worth $480
- Up to $10,000 USD worth of AWS credits and 1 year of Business Support (up to $1,500 USD) through AWS Activate.
After the event, top teams will be able to receive continuous support by one of Callaghan Innovation-funded incubators: Creative HQ, COIN South, Startup Dunedin, Startup Queenstown Lakes, Soda Inc, The Orchard and ThincLab.
