Ministry of Awesome and partners have launched the HealthTech Supernode Challenge. The aim is to identify and support New Zealand’s most innovative new idea, product, or startup that uses tech to solve real problems in healthcare. There’s $40K in prizes and loads of practical support for participants. You can find out more about the challenge in this video.
This week we also wanted to give a shout out to our friends at Sunday Club NZ, a newsletter that provides snippets of opinion & curated pieces on tech, startups, hot tips and feel good curated pieces. There’s a big focus on wellness, diversity and future trends.
