With more than $3.6 billion invested globally in the agritech & foodtech space, AusBiotech recognises the importance of supporting Australian companies, researchers and entrepreneurs in this expanding industry. The AusAg&Foodtech Summit 2018 will create a national forum facilitating interaction between researchers, technology developers, start-ups and investors ready to capitalise on a growing opportunity.

The AusAg&Foodtech Summit 2018 will focus on “turning science into business”, bringing together industry, researchers and investors to explore recent advances in technology, new opportunities for growth, quality improvements and productivity gains.

The program will include keynote presentations from local and international experts, opportunities to hear from companies at various stages of development and panel discussions answering key questions across five major themes:

 

THE INVESTORS

What do investors look for? What are the factors involved in making investment decisions?

THE CUSTOMERS

What types of technologies are agribusiness and food processors looking for? How do I communicate with my end user?

THE FRAMEWORK

How do you navigate the complicated world of IP, risk, finance and regulation?

 

THE CREATORS

How can researchers and entrepreneurs better engage with commercial entities on the road to successful commercialisation?

THE ENABLERS

What programs are available? How do I find and access funding?
