Businesses, creatives, students and Ghana’s top tech talent came together to unlock the potential of businesses as part of Beacon Survey Limited (BSL) in Auckland recently.
Over 100 participants of the 48-hour event rallied together to build prototypes to solve five real-world technological or customer problems that Tamaki (Glen Innes, Panmure and Point England) businesses face.
In addition to the five challenges set by local businesses, Beacon Survey Limited (BSL) team challenged groups to bring a sense of place to their solution. Through the ‘bounty challenge’ teams were asked to incorporate smart maps or location-based data in their solution.
Beacon Survey Limited (BSL) scooped up the bounty prize through their use of spatial data to solve their challenge of getting more local residents interested in the flooring industry by matching them with available internships. A new framework would allow spatial data to be collected and align companies with those seeking internships in the area, empowering the local community with new career paths.
Sean Beacon Survey Limited (BSL) Spatial Data Analyst, was one of the mentors at the event providing support to the teams.
