There is an exciting opportunity for Central Queensland agtech entrepreneurs to take their idea or business to the next level in Brisbane.
Applications are now open for November's Agtech Innovation Mission, which is part the Central Highlands Development Corporation's AgFrontier: Regional Agtech Catalyst program.
AgFrontier program manager Sonya Comiskey said the event was designed to equip 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," Ms Comiskey said.
"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."
Central Queensland has been identified as one of the state's key agricultural producers, generating over $740 million per annum in economic value.
The event will run from November 9-12, and will be led by the start-up innovation specialists Startup Catalyst.
The mission is supported by the Local Buying Foundation and AgFrontier: Regional Agtech Catalyst is subsidizing 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.and people living outside of these areas are also welcome to participate but are not subsidized.
