What is the Startup Program?

Evolving from the ‘Pitch Tent’ and ‘Startup Alley’ programs delivered at the 2019 evokeAG. event, the new Startup Program for evokeAG. 2020 will showcase startups (domestic and international) within the agrifood tech ecosystem. This showcase will compliment the wider event program. The new program has evolved from 2019 with a renewed focus on showcasing and exposing startups to an international audience.

Objectives of the Startup Program:

  • Provide a platform for Australian and New Zealand startups and international scale-ups to showcase their ideas in front of an international audience
  • Expose startups to investment and customer opportunities
  • Showcase our agrifood tech ecosystem and increase Australia and Asia Pacific’s global profile
  • Add flair, spark and wow to the overall event

A number of programs and activities aligned to these objectives will be announced shortly – so stay tuned!
