In this challenge, the Hackworks team will accompany the participants from their registration to the semi-finals. From there, the finalist teams will be taken care of by the organizing team (OBWB - Aqua Forum) and the others will be welcomed in the AquaHacking Alumni community.

The AquaHacking Challenge is a technological and entrepreneurial competition aimed at developing innovative solutions to freshwater issues. This Challenge allows young innovators to launch their start-up with a sustainable mandate. It is a pre-incubator and a stepping-stone for future entrepreneurs in the water sector.

This Challenge was established by the de Gaspé Beaubien Foundation and is powered by the RBC Foundation.
