evokeAG is calling for agricultural start-ups

evokeAG, the inaugural agrifood tech event held on 19–20 February 2019, will give 15 start-ups in the agricultural or food industries the opportunity to display their ideas to hundreds of Australian and international delegates.

Applications are open for the evokeAG Startup Alley, a specific start-up exhibition space at the event where successful start-ups can exhibit their ready-to-market product or service.

Located at the entrance of the Royal Exhibition Building in Melbourne, Startup Alley offers winners high foot traffic and exposure during the two days of the event. Winners will also receive two delegate tickets valued at $2200.

AgriFutures Australia General Manager Communications & Capacity Building Belinda Allitt said this exposure will help accelerate dynamic new ideas into the market.

“We’ll have hundreds of delegates ranging from investors, entrepreneurs, researchers and government representatives from all over the world in attendance. Startup Alley will give participants a unique chance to showcase their ideas and innovations and network with an international audience.

“It is important that we support innovative start-ups, even in their infancy, as these will become the industries of the future,” Allitt said.

15 businesses will be selected by the evokeAG Startup Alley Selection Panel to feature in the special exhibition, and five finalists in the evokeAG Pitch Tent Investment Ready stream will also be awarded a place.

Applications will close at 11 pm (AEDT) on 30 November 2018, and successful applicants will be announced on 17 December 2018. For full eligibility criteria, terms and conditions and to apply, visit www.evokeag.com/startup-alley.
