Do you want to contribute to innovation in agriculture?

background

As an agricultural technology start-up hailing from Western Australia morphed into a global company with offices on two continents, nobody knows better what it takes to turn an idea into a business than Agworld. It is therefore why Agworld is proud to continue as a sponsor and contributor to Agristart for this year’s Harvest 2.0 program.

Agristart aims to connect and grow disparate parts of the agri-sector through acceleration, facilitated collaboration, technology and mentoring. They connect innovators, farmers and researchers by delivering holistic programs that nurture effective collaborations, provide opportunities for mentorship, market development and investor readiness. The previous Harvest accelerator program saw 8 Western Australian businesses complete the program and offer incredible opportunities by facilitating new collaborations, product trials, new clients and distributors, or potential investment opportunities for all companies involved.

Agworld, which focuses their platform around the idea of Collaborative Farming Solutions, fully supports the idea that local ideas and ventures should get maximum support. Agworld Australia General Manager Simon Foley remarks: “We are very excited to be part of the Harvest 2.0 program, both as a sponsor and as a contributor of time, knowledge and industry experience. We also feel that the inclusion of an intensive residential Agri-Innovation accelerator for regional participants provides a great opportunity for those that normally don’t get these chances to contribute their ideas and learn about the challenges but are constrained  due to the tyranny of distance.”

Customer Service & Sales Representative Rachel Asquith adds to this: “I speak to growers every day through my role at Agworld and the message I keep getting from these growers is how important they think innovation is within agriculture. Agriculture has changed enormously over the last 100 years and growers realise that the so called ‘digital revolution’ we are currently experiencing is going to keep on changing the agricultural landscape. Whenever a locally based start-up can contribute to this industry change, assist growers in overcoming everyday challenges that arise and help growers stay profitable, everyone’s a winner”  

As part of the Harvest 2.0 program, participants will spend a total of 12 days, over a 12-week period, exploring a range of topics. The program includes interactive workshops, panel sessions, networking events and also two field trips. The main topics include positioning your business for growth, new technology for Ag, export strategies & Agri partners, increasing income, and showcasing / demoing your business. Needless to say, there will be plenty to learn and master for all involved!
