SproutX Pre-Accelerator Program

SproutX catalyses connections between Australian founders, investors, industry mentors, agribusiness, academia, and government to affect word-class innovation across the agrifood supply chain.

SproutX received funding via LaunchVic's Grants for AgTech Pre Accelerator Programs to deliver a hybrid program of mentorship and experiential learning in collaboration with The University of Melbourne and The Victorian Farmers Federation. The Business of Agriculture Pre-Accelerator Program seeks to draw new entrants to the agtech startup ecosystem, by engaging tertiary research, academic, and corporate R&D participants to consider commercial opportunities through startups.

By fostering collaboration between primary producers, accomplished agtech startups, and industry leaders, the Program seeks to create a pipeline for non-traditional entrepreneurs to consider venture scale startup in Agriculture 4.0 areas of need.

SproutX will deliver the ten-week program four times over two years, accepting 154 agtech entrepreneurs into the program.
