Creating Global Opportunities for New Zealanders with Hemp
Take part in the inaugural “Hemp Ideation Challenge”
The NZHIA is working with Christchurch NZ and Webtools to bring you New Zealand’s first ever ‘Hemp Ideation Challenge’ – an exciting event that will help to drive the New Zealand hemp industry forward using a “challenge-driven innovation process“.
The aim of the challenge is to accelerate development of ground-breaking hemp products, discover new uses for hemp, and identify innovative ways to produce, process and manufacture hemp – both on farm and in the food and fibre industries.
The inaugural challenge will run from 5 to 18th September and we need YOU to take part.
NZHIA acts as a catalyst, bringing together various government ecosystems, investors, research and development (R&D) organisations – and companies from parallel industries who are involved in primary production, food, fibre and health sectors.
While many are already engaged in the process, our biggest challenge is to educate and inform all stakeholders about how to use this wonderful new resource in their business development plans.
Using an “Innovation as a Service” model, the NZHIA can bring this information to early adopters and speed up the process of exploring potential environmental, economic, and sustainable commercial uses for iHemp.
The ‘Hemp Ideation Challenge’ offers an ideal opportunity for both hemp and complementary industry enterprises to connect with members of the New Zealand hemp community through event sponsorship.
