An Agri-Innovation Hackathon
The event will be divided into 2 segments, a Hackathon and an Innovation Challenge. Please see their differentiation below:
a) Hackathon: This is a 2 day-long event which will accept early-stage ideas around agri- innovation. These 2 days will include workshops, mentorships, and other aspects to help the participant work on their solution in 2 days.
b) Innovation Challenge: This is a 3-hour pitching competition for participants who have an MVP and are ready to deploy solutions.
Our problem statements have been gathered directly from those who operate in the Agriculture space. Based on the problem statements collected by our stakeholders, over 12 thematic areas within the Agri Innovation space have been identified. But feel free to apply regardless of the thematic statement as long as your idea is innovative.
