The event is designed to equip start-ups and spin off businesses with the tools, knowledge and connections they need to grow and expand.
“We have a jam-packed schedule planned, including visits to local incubators and tech hubs, meetings with investors, mentors and innovation experts, and sessions on programs, accelerators and grants,” AgFrontier Program Manager Sonya Comiskey says.
“The mission provides Central Queensland start-ups with an opportunity to build out their network with other Queensland agtech start-ups and key members of the Brisbane innovation ecosystem.
“Just the opportunity to interact with other like-minded people and some of our world leading AgFrontier Incubator alumni, who will also be participating, is priceless.”
The mission will run from 9 to 12 November 2020 and be led by start-up innovation specialists Startup Catalyst.
Supported by the Local Buying Foundation, AgFrontier: Regional Agtech Catalyst is subsidising 10 places for people with an agtech start-up or big idea that solves an agri-industry challenge. Applicants must be based in the Central Highlands, Isaac or Woorabinda local government areas. People outside these areas are also welcome to participate but are not subsidised.
