SproutX started as an idea for collaboration between Findex and the National Farmers Federation. However as with any startup, the idea pivoted and grew into what it is today; an accelerator program and national co-working space network.
Just as it ‘takes a village to raise a child’, SproutX believes that it takes an ecosystem to create world class entrepreneurs. Hence the core model of SproutX is reliant on the fact that it brings together the entire agtech ecosystem in the one place. This includes government, corporate, investment, entrepreneurs, industry and of course the most important stakeholder, the farmer.
With the end of the mining boom, the Australia requires a new industry to become the growth engine of the economy. But this is only possible with the deliberate assistance of all players in the ecosystem. Whether it’s SproutX or the entrepreneur, one group alone can’t make entrepreneurship within agriculture a success.
So join us on our agtech journey as we seek to disrupt the industry and take agriculture to the next level. We need your help!
