India-Israel hackathon rewards innovation in cyber security and agriculture E-mail

Keen to inspire young entrepreneurs, the state of Andhra Pradesh in India organised a first-of-its-kind hackathon to resolve problems in the fields of agriculture, cybersecurity and water supply.

The Sunrise Open Challenge Hackathon (SOCH) included startups and entrepreneurs from India and Israel, along with teams of students from both countries. The 30-hour event, which took place in Visakhapatnam and Tel Aviv in February, was organised by the Andhra Pradesh Innovation Society, in association with DCF Ventures and Axis Innovation.

The Indian leg of the event saw participation from 38 teams, with a total of 178 participants. Participating teams came from Andhra Pradesh, Karnataka, Maharashtra, Tamil Nadu, Madhya Pradesh and Telangana. The top three solutions by startups and the top three students’ teams were shortlisted under each category as winners, and prizes worth Rs 50 lakh (about US$70,000) were announced for each category.
