We are looking forward to welcoming the winner of Uruguay’s first HackathonAGRO to our agri-tech conference REAP.
The event is being organised by the British Embassy Montevideo to stimulate interest in agri-tech.
Alex Ongay and Pia Delisante of the Programme and Prosperity Team at the British Embassy say that the Hackathon is generating a lot of excitement and want they want the winners of the challenge to meet firsthand people who are using agri-tech to make a real difference – which is why a trip to REAP is perfect.
HackathonAGRO is to be held on 17 and 18 September 2016 at Expo Prado 2016 and will be an open competition for national teams of researchers, entrepreneurs and experts in information technology, agro and business.
The challenge will be to present a business model and a minimum viable product or prototype that uses technology to solve one or more agricultural problems in Uruguay. The hackathon, sponsored by IBM, aims to stimulate creative problem solving using a multi-disciplinary team.
