Honey Bee Hackathon

The honey bee industry is booming! If you have an idea, come and meet scientific and business experts to develop your business concept.

Australia’s enviable biosecurity status places our honey bee products as the purest in the world. Our healthy honey bees also provide a pollination service advantage to our growing horticulture capacity, fodder production and canola productivity. Being a young industry there are many opportunities for new technologies, novel products and export opportunities.

The challenge of this Hackathon is to present a proposition to add value to the Honey Bee industry. Starting on Friday evening you will be introduced to the industry and pitch project ideas to develop into a business on Saturday.

Minister MacTiernan will lead a panel to select the best business ideas and award two $500 prizes.
