We’re in the final countdown to FoodBytes! Sydney and we’ve been blown away by the response from the agtech and foodtech ecosystems.
This is the first FoodBytes! event held in Australia and we’ve been really impressed with quality and quantity of applications received.
Successful applicants have been invited to attend Rabobank’s Farm2Fork (F2F) Summit in Sydney on Thursday 3 November, where they can demonstrate their concept to attendees – a mix of Rabobank clients, potential investors, media and key industry influencers.
A great judging panel, drawn from the agtech and foodtech communities, has assessed the applications and we’ve invited eight of the agtech or foodtech startups to deliver a short pitch presentation on the main F2F summit stage. A FoodBytes! Sydney Judges’ Choice Award and a People’s Choice Award will be announced following the presentations.
The startups pitching on the day will be:
- IDLocate – Result
- Knewe Biosystems
- PhycoFood Co
- Smart Robotic Viticulture
- Sprout Kitchens
FoodBytes! by Rabobank was created with a simple mission in mind – to find the most innovative and ground-breaking concepts in food and agriculture, and pair that creativity with the capital needed to bring it to market.
Rabobank believes that it is crucial to encourage, support, and promote an ecosystem full of different business models and viewpoints that will drive innovative solutions. We believe our key role in supporting this type of ecosystem is to promote and facilitate connections throughout the entire food and agriculture value chain.
