Okanagan WaterWise presents...


The Okanagan Basin Water Board-Okanagan WaterWise has teamed up with AquaAction to, once again, host an AquaHacking Challenge, this time the “2021 Western Canada AquaHacking Challenge.”

Over the last several months, teams of university students from B.C. to Manitoba have been working to develop solutions to some of the region’s most pressing water issues. Three teams have made it the finals. Some $45,000 in seed-funding is available and these teams have their final pitch tomorrow, Tues. Sept. 14 at 1 p.m. (PT). Prizes of $10,000, $15,000 and $20,000 will be awarded, plus teams will be placed in a local incubator, helping get their solution to market.

During the event, attendees will be given the opportunity to vote for their favourite team / solution and help one team win an extra $1,500 cash prize.
