Calling Victorian agrifood startups – Applications now open for the THRIVE AUSTRALIA Challenge 2020

The THRIVE AUSTRALIA Challenge, in partnership with CSIRO, the Victorian Government, the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA), and the U.S. Department of State, aims to enable the needed transformations in Australia’s food value chain as highlighted in the U.N.’s Sustainable Development Goals. The Challenge will accomplish this by identifying, promoting, accelerating, and investing in innovative early-stage Australian startups that are creating new and alternative paths for a more efficient and sustainable global food system.

Five to ten startups will be selected from the pool of applicants to present their ideas at THRIVE AUSTRALIA’s Pitch Challenge before an audience of top agricultural leaders, investors, and entrepreneurs. One winning startup will receive the THRIVE AUSTRALIA Challenge Award, brand exposure, access to the THRIVE ecosystem, and a spot at pitch finals for the award-winning THRIVE VII Accelerator Program (March-June 2021) which includes investment and pitching at THRIVE | Forbes Demo Day in Salinas, California, USA.
