Mount View High selected as one of seven schools in the country to participate in a agricultural entrepreneurial program
Written by Gillian Chan
Startup.business recently visited Mount View High School in New South Wales to launch the AgriFutures funded program. It was a wonderful day filled with intense energy and excitement for the entrepreneurial journey ahead. These #brilliantbusinesskids will look to develop innovative business ideas to pitch at a national competition in November. Solving local agricultural issues by students was at the forefront of the launch and the students were rearing to begin. It was incredible to see a school so vivaciously encourage young girls to take part in agriculture as they are aware of the need for gender diversity in the industry in order for it to be sustainable. Mount View High has also been active in its engagement with its community, such as potentially partnering with the University of Newcastle, as they acknowledge the need to provide tangible possibilities for its students especially in Agriculture so that they can see it as a viable career path in their future. We would like to thank Mount View High School for welcoming us and Liz Riley from Vitibit for delivering the keynote during the event. Vitibit consults in the area of viticultural. Their expertise is second to none as they provide viticultural advice to small, medium and large vineyard enterprises spanning across NSW, Tasmania and Queensland. With over 18 years experience in the field, it was fantastic to have Liz be a part of the AgriFutures launch and we would welcome her back anytime!
