AgriFutures General Manager, Global Innovation Networks, Harriet Mellish, said “when it comes to innovation and technology in the agrifood sector, Australia is on the edge of immense opportunity and this cohort reflects that”.
 
Mellish said ten of these startups have been selected by AgriFutures to demonstrate their technology to conference-goers at evokeAG. 2024 on the demo stage, and a small contingent of Australian and New Zealand startups and scaleups will also have the opportunity to present to potential customers and investors at the event’s Culinary Capital Dinner on the eve of the two day event.

  • Agbot (QLD)

The businesses selected for the Startup Program demonstrate exceptional technology that will help revolutionise the sector, have strong market potential, and a clear vision for the future and growth opportunities for the business.
