It’s a half-day workshop, presented by Famers2Founders on Wednesday, 22 May from 9am at Federation University, Churchill.
The workshops form part of a world-first entrepreneurship development program designed to help producers build entrepreneurial and technological skills via tools, resources, coaching and support so they can participate directly in bringing new agtech, foodtech, and food ventures to market.
Following the workshops, producers can apply for the F2F innovation streams in agtech, foodtech, and food innovation.
Local primary producer and director of Gippsland Natural Beef, Paul Crock says ventures like F2F are vital for farmers to get their boot in the technological door.
“You might be sitting on the farm and have a great idea, but unless you know the lingo and understand the tools that are available, you’re not going to get anywhere.
This is where accelerator programs help producers. They teach you the processes and procedures you need and how to think along the lines of an investor. You learn how to pitch and what will successfully see investors take in interest in your idea or product.
"The scope for investment is huge and farmers need to jump onboard”.
