About AquaHacking Challenge 2019
Each year, over several months, the AquaHacking Challenge engages with rising gen hackers, engineers and marketers from various universities to create multi-disciplinary teams and develop clean-tech engineering, web and mobile solutions to water issues affecting the Great Lakes and St. Lawrence Watershed Basin.
As our focus is demand-driven innovation, the water issues tackled are designed and submitted by organizations who also provide expert insight to teams to better understand the issues as well as provide access to relevant data. AquaHacking Challenge founding sponsor IBM Canada has also provided Watson APIs, Cloud access and more to competing teams for the duration of the Challenge. For teams moving on from the Semi-final, IBM Canada will provide ongoing access to Cloud and other technologies for the period leading up to the Final. The expected results are functional, marketable and demand-driven solutions that have a real and measurable impact in solving water issues. Ultimately winning teams and solutions will become water-tech start-ups.
