Description

Government & Innovators unite to solve validated agricultural problems

Are you an innovator, developer, data guru, designer, or startup? Are you keen to solve problems in the agriculture industry?

AgHack aims to solve pre-validated agricultural challenges presented by the WA Department of Primary Industries and Regional Development (DPIRD).

Together, we have endorsed the presented challenges for their relevance and value to the industry - giving them market for commercialisation from the start.

Globally, governments and enterprises are facing urgent problems requiring solutions now.
 Your solution could attract investment thanks to the MoD network.

Register now!



// ABOUT THE AGHACK HACKATHON //

AgHack is a hackathon weekend where you set out to create an innovative solution to our challenges. You will meet like-minded people looking to solve significant problems.

See the challenges

Not technology-minded? That’s okay - we often find that the best ideas come from those who can look through a different lens. You have just as much to offer.

Not part of a team? That fine - a lot of people join hackathons every year not starting off in a team. On the Friday night, we will help you find a team and meet some really interesting people.



// WHAT IS MINISTRY OF DATA (MoD) //

Government agencies face problems that can be solved with technology. MoD bridges the gap. It provides a platform for collaboration between government and the innovation ecosystem.

MoD aims to help innovators develop the tools and solutions for the advancement of public service and society.


Ministry of Data will provide:

  1. Qualified Government agency problems to the innovator and start-up community that have global potential if solved.
  2. Direct access into Government agencies so conceived solutions have an internal rainmaker and potential seed funding to move solutions forward.
  3. Access to GovIP, our innovation-pathway to Government, where we'll help you advance your solution commercialisation.
  4. Access to some of Perth’s finest accelerator programs and co-working spaces.
  5. A bridge to Government for existing initiatives and start-ups!
