CapriCMW is a Proud Sponsor of Accelerate Okanagan's Zero Waste Valley Climate Hackathon


CapriCMW is a proud partner of Accelerate Okanagan and we are very excited to be sponsoring the Zero Waste Valley Climate Hackathon on November 25, 2021!

During this virtual all-day event, 50+ Okanagan community members will work in teams to develop innovative solutions and business models aimed at addressing climate change and achieving zero waste in the Okanagan Valley. "Zero waste" refers to eliminating waste currently being burned or buried in our landfills by turning it into commercially viable product.

Teams will be introduced to the Design Thinking process, a powerful methodology that can yield solutions and prototypes within hours. With the support of mentors, each team will develop pitches and present to a panel of judges in a public virtual event featuring a keynote speaker. Anybody interested in watching is invited to join and attendees will be able to vote for their favourite pitch before a winner is selected by the panel. 

Community members of all skill sets and backgrounds are encouraged to participate in the Hackathon (diverse teams with multiple perspectives tend to have the most success). There is no fee for participating or watching.
