Farmers2Founders Entrepreneurship Program now Underway

Farmers2Founders (F2F), was co-founded by Sarah Nolet (AgThentic) and Dr Christine Pitt (Food Futures Company) is an  8-week incubator program that helps producers answer two questions: is their idea worth pursuing; and what does it take to get started?

The Farmers2Founders Ideas Program is designed to test the potential of those concepts and progress them from the paddock to the public domain both nationally and ultimately on the global stage.

To run the program they enlisted the support of AgriFutures, Wine Australia, Australian Wool Innovation, Grains Research & Development Corporation and Meat & Livestock Australia, with the federal government tipping in funding via its Incubator Support initiative.

The inaugural program chose 12 ventures from 24 applications, including Victorian producer Jodie Lawless, who’s developing a new sales platform for farmers.

“I know what it’s like to experience the frustration with different challenges in the industry. The opportunity to iron out some of the issues with the help of F2F’s tech-experts is the chance I’ve been waiting for,” she said.

The program kicked off last month and applications for the 2020 F2F program have just opened and close on February 1 next year.
