48-Hour Health Challenge

The 48-Hour Health Challenge is a perfect opportunity to engage with some of the big problems facing the Health Sector in Canterbury and New Zealand and take home part of a $3,000 cash prize pool!

Over the weekend you will work in teams tackling one of the Challenges set by the Health Precinct Advisory Council. You will discuss and test your concept with experts from the health sector and mentors from the business community.

At the end of the weekend each team will pitch to a panel of judges with the top three teams taking home cash prizes!

Ideas developed and pitched during the weekend may be taken up by the Health Precinct and implemented – if this happens participants will have the opportunity to continue to be involved.
