“The day before something is truly a breakthrough, it’s a crazy idea.” - Peter Diamandis

Modeled after the XPRIZE, a non-profit organization that designs and manages competitions intended to encourage technological developments that could benefit humanity, MahiX is an open innovation challenge, seeking cooperative solutions to the most pressing issues in the ag sector.  

We see innovation as any new method, idea, partnership, or product that has the potential to effect positive change in the food system. This could be a policy change, a manufacturing technique, a process improvement, or a cooperative agreement that has the potential to revolutionize the ag sector. 

Kamehameha Schools will be selecting a partner and investment for the 2019 competition and hopes to open this aspect of the program for external proposals in 2020. If you have innovative ideas and/or would like to partner with us on MahiX, please contact us at
