Meet the Ten Teams Pushing the Boundaries of Wearable Tech in New Zealand

Welcome to C-Prize 2017

C-Prize is an incentivised technology competition to push the boundaries of what’s possible through technology.

Wearable technology is poised to become an essential part of our everyday lives when it is put to work solving real problems - problems faced by industry.

New Zealand innovators and entrepreneurs are being challenged to turn industries on their head by creating the next generation of wearable technology to improve human performance and wellbeing. Are you brave enough to redefine how we could live by entering C-Prize 2017?

  • Up to ten finalists will receive a NZ$35,000 prize package to develop prototypes of their ideas.
  • The Grand-Prize winner will receive a NZ$100,000 prize package, including an expense paid trip to a major overseas technology trade show.
