UHack 2017 is over – looking forward to seeing you at UHack 2018
UHack 2017 has wrapped up for another successful year! UHack 2017 was held simultaneously in Hobart, Launceston and Burnie.
The event was a huge success with over 76 participants in 19 teams this year.

This was the first year for Burnie in the competition, even better for them was that one of their teams, Control Freaks, took out the first prize in the Open Division with their One Farm Smartphone Control System. Second prize in the open division was team For Loopers with their project Energy2U, and third prize was team AI P.T with their AI personal training app.
In the student division, first place was team Sarox with Career Connect. Second place was team Face Off with their online protection Echo app, and third place was team Asian Coders with their Health Cyborg app.
Our next steps are to really drive further progress and development of these teams, linking them to mentors and business development channels to hopefully generate a number of start-ups.
Building on the UHack momentum, we will be hosting a ‘pitch fest’ in early 2018 where teams can pitch to a group of potential investors to help get their concept off the ground. We will welcome your attendance at this event.
