After 48 hours of innovation and hard work, two University of Waikato teams came out on top of the NZ Startup Bootcamp, each taking home $10,000.
The winner of the ASB Best Startup category was agri tech team RH Innovation.
The team was made up of Waikato students: Rahat Hasan, Tyler Crabtree, Bismarck Simeon, Daniel Blair and Cooper Stephenson.
The students have developed a revolutionary way to measure soil moisture, salinity and fertiliser content, using cost effective sensors to effectively gather information with ease. The information is stored in their database and made available to their clients via the Cloud. This information will later serve as the backbone of their Artificial Intelligence model which will help farmers save money by providing precise information on soil condition.
