This Wellington based Startup came to Dunedin and found a receptive cohort!
Stephanie Haworth, Investor Director on the Board of Hunter Safety Lab, was our Guest Mentor and she addressed the students in a lively and interactive way, frequently involving them, creating an open and responsive atmosphere.
“Hunter Safety Lab develops collision-avoidance technology to protect workers at risk of being struck by mobile plant or thrown objects — from bulldozers to bullets.”¹
For this event, Stephanie and Hunter Safety Lab presented “the world’s first IRIS Hunter Detection System to prevent mistaken-for-game hunting accidents”¹.
The students liked what they heard and proceeded to form a team and a Facebook Group to tackle the problem offered to them by Hunter Safety Lab. The team members are: Kirio Birks, Finn Shewell, Charlotte Goodyear, AJ Gunjal, Rossana Boni, Anna Weidling and Lui Wei.
