AquaHacking Finals

AquaHacking Finals

Day 4 - Oct 25

Design Exchange, Toronto

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 Basin.

After the inspiring success of the three previous editions of the AquaHacking Challenge, this year’s challenge – AquaHacking 2018 – Lake Ontario & Beyond – will be held on Thursday, October 25, 2018 as part of Ontario’s Water Innovation Week in collaboration with WaterTAP.

For one afternoon, 350 participants will attend a keynote speaker presentation and a panel discussion, network with key actors in water and technology, and witness the five AquaHacking Challenge finalist teams pitch their clean tech solutions that they have been developing since March aiming to solve water issues facing the Great Lakes.

In addition to helping clean up a vital water source and making the world a better place, there’s also $50,000 in prizes to be won, spots at local high-tech incubators and much more up for grabs!

Just announced! Keynotes Jill Heinerth, Explorer-in-Residence, The Royal Canadian Geographic Society and Ken Cook, President and Co-Founder, Environmental Working Group will join the afternoon session.
