Imagine Cup 2014: New Zealand

2014 New Zealand Microsoft Imagine Cup Competition!

Last year, our New Zealand World Finalist Team InfinityTek headed up to Russia to represent NZ in the Imagine Cup World Finals. Team InfinityTek competed against a total of 110 teams from around the globe and ended up placing in the Top 10. This was an outstanding achievement for the team, and also New Zealand.

To enter the Imagine Cup and have an opportunity to represent New Zealand at the World Finals (to be held in Seattle) you'll need to get a team together and get building.
