Partnering with AgriFutures Australia

In 2018 and 2019, AgriFutures Australia partnered with startup.business to deliver Entrepreneurial Learning in Action programs to 14 schools across rural and regional Australia. The program was tailored to have students focus on using innovation and an entrepreneurial mindset to solve local problems in Agriculture. Winners of the pitch comp at the end of the program were then invited to compete in a national pitch final during the Brilliant BusinessKids Festival in Sydney.

 

In 2020, AgriFutures Australia and startup.business are delivering programs to 26 schools across Australia ensuring that kids are being challenged to think critically and differently.

"Having the opportunity for our girls to attend Sydney and pitch their idea in front of a national audience was a chance for the girls to mix with like-minded students as well as with representatives from Australian Agricultural Industry, academia, government and community groups.”
