Think a Tablelands winner can’t compete? Our first winners were flown as their FAC Australia prize to South Africa. Indeed, they did not win, but their business is now flourishing whereas it was stalled before they took the leap, won here and made amazing connections overseas.
Yes, think again if you think the Tablelands can’t provide a winner! The winner of last year’s FAC Australia, David Davies of AgUnity, was flown to the final in Turkey as his prize. He not only had a blast at the best pitch competition ever but he won! Our winner became the Global Agripreneur of the Year! Don’t think that it cannot happen! It already has!
Watch what David Davies of AgUnity has to say about the benefits to his business for entering the FAC Australia competition.
