More information on R9 Accelerator
R9 Accelerator is a real life example of making it Better for Business when interacting with government. The teams are each working on an opportunity to make it better for businesses to interact with government.
The R9 Accelerator is led by the Result 9 Better for Business programme and delivered by Creative HQ to power better public services to business customers.
The R9 Accelerator brings together teams of entrepreneurs, developers, private sector specialists and government experts to work on projects to help solve major pain points for New Zealand businesses and reduce their effort in dealing with government.
The process takes just 14 weeks to generate a customer-validated prototype – ready for further investment. It takes a learn-as-you-go, fail fast approach to develop and test new products and services.
One of the teams – CoHelix. Dan, Nicole, and Alex are helping businesses be compliant by improving the fieldstaff services from regulatory agencies. Find out about the other teams and what they’re working on.
