Connecting smart producers with smart technology



<HACKNELSON> is a collaborative event bringing Nelson's Primary Industry people, Software Developers and Creative Designers together. Local organisations will pitch problems for teams to solve over the course of 48 hours in November.

<HACKNELSON> is a digital innovation weekend focused on unleashing the potential of our region's primary industries.

After working all weekend teams will present their concepts and prototypes. Teams are not required to produce a fully implemented solution. A judging panel will award first, second and third place prizes.

The real prize will be the connections and mutual opportunity created between smart producers and smart technologists in Nelson/Tasman.
