The Future Agro Challenge (FAC) is a global platform bringing together food and agribusiness stakeholders and players to create the acceleration process for agripreneurs and startups to fulfil their potential in finding solutions to local, regional and global challenges.
As part of this, FAC holds the largest global competition that discovers innovative fundable food, agtech, and agriculture ventures from various corners of the globe. The most promising ideas and ventures are selected to compete in the Global Championships for the title of ‘Agribusiness of the Year’.
Future Agro Challenge Australia will be held for the third year running in the Atherton Tablelands region of the beautiful Far North Queensland on November 16 & 17 2018.
At this event, you will be the first to hear all about the latest innovation in food, agtech and agriculture as visionaries from across Australia face off live on a national stage to compete for the honour of representing their country at the Global Future Agro Challenge.
The winner will win return air ticket and accommodation to the FAC Global Championship, Greece in May 2019 to gain access to world-class mentors, investors, potential clients, and new market opportunities.
The winner of the 2017 Future Agro Challenge Australia, AgUnity, went on to compete in the Global Championships held in Turkey earlier this year and won the title of Agripreneur of the Year.
