Satisfactorily, the sixth installment of the High Tech Challenge culminated, promoted by the University of Concepción, having 6 tracks as finalists among 18 high impact selected proposals. 202 young visionaries competed with their projects, willing to revolutionize the agricultural world, forests, intelligent industry, social innovation, retail, and equity technologies, being possible thanks to 50 organizations that collaborated with the contest, including Agropuente.
For 3 months the Agropuente team carried out accompaniments in the different activities stipulated by the content through personalized mentoring and training.
The winning projects will count on financial support, computer equipment, trips to international fairs and IncubaUdeC consulting, for the creation of a business model.
Likewise, Agropuente took part in the jury for the election of the winning team in the agricultural area, with “Biocen” track standing out, which is a startup for reusing wood ashes as a impurities remover on dirty surfaces.
Finally, the boost of the Ñuble region will continue with talks and mentoring that Agropuente is giving with the objective of promoting the entrepreneurial ecosystem in the area.
