SproutX is the centre of Australia’s $1.2 trillion agriculture opportunity. Through the SproutX Pre-Accelerator, Accelerator and Co-working space programs, innovation within the sector is enabled through the empowerment of entrepreneurs.
Mildura Regional Development is extremely privileged to have been able to attract SproutX to the region. It means this amazing program is available for rural and regional entrepreneurs who no longer have to travel to the city to find investment and support. This is a unique opportunity for local ideas and local entrepreneurs to make a real difference to the Agtech space and receive the help and support required to take their idea to the next level.
Join us as we revolutionise Australian agriculture and take agtech to the next level. SproutX will run two accelerator programs:
Pre-Accelerator program is a 6-week course aimed at teaching the basics of starting an agtech/agritech startup company. It teaches budding entrepreneurs best practice methods and builds teams to potentially enter the Accelerator program. Participants who successfully complete the free course receive $1000 cash and $10,000 in services.
Accelerator program is SproutX’s premier 6-month program for Australia’s top agtech/agritech companies. It provides companies with $40,000, coworking space, top level mentoring and distribution with Australia’s biggest brand names.
Separate to the Accelerator programs, SproutX also runs specialised agtech/agritech co-working spaces. These agtech hubs serve as the centre of the community and will be located around Australia.
The first physical space known as ‘SproutX-HQ’ is located at Level 1, 459 Little Collins Street, Melbourne. As we fill the space with entrepreneurs, SproutX-HQ is free for use on an application basis. If you’re interested in being a resident, apply now to be assessed for residency!
