The Cap App Challenge

The Wellington tertiary community is calling for entrepreneurial ideas and innovations to help enhance the experience students have in the city.

The Cap App Challenge is offering $15,000 in prizes for individuals, teams or companies to imagine an app that would boost tertiary students’ everyday connection and interaction with Wellington.

Finalists will be judged in a Dragons’ Den style event with a $10,000 prize for the overall winner and $2500 each for the people’s choice and design winners. There will also be the potential for a collaboration agreement to develop an application.

Students have suggested ideas such as a job and work experience app, a student carpooling app and an app to find student accommodation in Wellington, amongst many more.

Tens of thousands of students call the capital home, and The Cap App Challenge is calling for people to put their thinking caps on to come up with innovative and imaginative ways to showcase Wellington to that community.
