Your guide to events in Nelson, New Zealand
Friday 14th-Sunday 16th September 2018
HackNelson – now in its second year – is a collaborative weekend of digital innovation that brings together many of Nelson Tasman's talented business professionals, analysts, software developers, creative designers, marketers, entrepreneurs and students to spend 48 intense hours addressing real challenges posed by local businesses and organisations.
Teams are formed, and participants work all weekend with the support of our talented mentors. On Sunday, teams present their concepts and prototypes, and the judging panel award prizes.
On top of the money, prizes and profile gained by taking part, the other massive benefit of HackNelson is the connections and mutual opportunities created between local businesses and innovative people in the Nelson Tasman region.
The event is jointly sponsored and run by Datacom and by the Nelson Regional Development Agency (NRDA).
