After a seven month journey, Farmbot is thrilled to announce that we have been awarded Food & AgriTech of the Year in the Australian Technologies Competition. Farmbot was one of ten category winners chosen from a total pool of 217 entries. This is testament to our great team at Farmbot and our many advisers, investors, alliance partners and most importantly our customers.
The Australian Technologies Competition seeks to identify and accelerate Australian technology ‘scaleups’ with the greatest global potential. The Competition brings experienced entrepreneurs, business builders, angel investors, venture capital funds, commercialisation experts, leading corporates and government representatives together with founders, in a collaborative coaching environment. It has a strong focus on equipping founders with the skills and contacts to develop and manage high growth companies in challenging international markets with many of the success winners going on to significant international success.
