World-leading innovation happens here in Canterbury and we're looking to uncover more cutting-edge thinking with the Food, Fibre and Agritech Challenge in 2022.

Supported by ChristchurchNZ, KiwiNet and the Canterbury Mayoral Forum, the UC Centre for Entrepreneurship is excited to deliver this Challenge which will leverage the regions strengths and capabilities to equip change-makers to develop disruptive solutions for this sector. In collaboration with Lincoln University’s B.Linc Innovation and ThincLab Canterbury, UCE will bring together Christchurch and Canterbury’s ecosystem of innovators, investors and industry experts to deliver innovation masterclasses and mentoring in an eight week pre-accelerator programme. Finalists will then pitch their ideas at the Showcase and Awards Ceremony hosted at E Tipu 2022 - the Boma NZ Agri Summit on 21 June for a share in cash prizes.

Applications are now closed for 2022
