Be part of the farming revolution

About the Competition

There’s an agricultural revolution underway. And our passion is pushing the envelope until innovative and fundable food, agtech, and agriculture innovations have spread around the globe, from farm to fork and beyond. The Future Agro Challenge is the leading global competition, bringing together the best of the best to make it all happen.

 

As many countries and regions face global challenges in food security, food safety, food waste and healthy sustainable diets, local and regional solutions right in our backyards are often overlooked. Too many voices go unheard. Are you already integrated with a local network and infrastructure? Our vast network is here to showcase, grow, and expand your vision.

 

FAC culminates every year with its Global Agripreneurs Summit, where the most promising ideas and ventures on an international level are selected to compete for the title of the ”Agripreneur of the Year”.  To reach the Global Agripreneurs Summit and compete for this international title, six Australian agriculture entrepreneurs will first present their innovative ideas in an exciting pitch competition as they compete to represent Australia on the world stage!
