Every accelerator programme ends with a pitch event, and the second iteration of our successful government ‘R9 Accelerator’ was no different.
On June 2, seven teams pitched their solutions, which have the potential to improve NZ government services and unleash the value of government-held data.
Along with a healthy dose of inspiration, industry and government representatives who attended R9 Accelerator Demo Day gained insight into a new way for the public and private sector to work together to deliver solutions for business customers.
After hearing the progress made by teams in just 12 weeks, the panel of private and public sector investors provided a funding recommendation for each project. This would enable them to continue working on their solutions alongside the agencies who will be impacted.
