Western Australia: 9 Agtech Companies to Watch in 2018
The launch of Western Australia’s first ag-tech accelerator program has ushered in a new era for agricultural innovation, writes Cally Dupe on the The West Australian website.
Nine ag-tech companies, ranging from small to medium size enterprises, were almost midway through the nine-week HARVEST Agtech Accelerator program this week, which started on March 2.
Founded by Perth-based business Agristart, owned by Cunderdin-born Natasha Ayers and her business partner Peter Rossdeutchser, the program aims to help companies understand the needs of the broader agricultural sector and develop their product.
It was designed to fast-track businesses with an agriculture-related technology idea.
HARVEST participants spend one day a week in Perth, attending seminars and workshops with a range of experts in export pathways, digital marketing, investment, and more.
These are the nine HARVEST participants selected to take part in the free program.
