We are excited to announce our cohort for HARVEST 2023, which is now in its 6th year of supporting innovative WA agtech startup businesses!
Congratulations to Waytree, QL Space, Energy Farmers Australia, Aeration Control, Farm Optimisation Group, Desert Gem, Murdoch University Research Project, XSights Digital Pty Ltd, Esperance Physiotherapy and Carbon West Pty Ltd. We are also very lucky to host a group from the Nanyang Technological University, Singapore.
From startups specialising in aeration control to automated monitoring of livestock health, our cohort is full of incredible innovators. The four-month HARVEST program began with a two-day bootcamp at the Muresk Institute, Northam, last week, where the cohort enjoyed networking and collaborating with each other and guest speakers.
One cohort member, Ariane Platell, has undergone multiple accelerator programs for her startup QL Space, but said this one was “by far the best” given the valuable face-to-face interaction it offered participants.
[The HARVEST program is] by far the best."
“It was really good for the businesses to be immersed on a working farm, the school of agtech surrounding them, and really just get away from the city. There are many opportunities for them to share with each other, learn from each other and I can really see potential collaborations between the cohort, which is always really exciting.”, Innovation Cluster Managing Director Dr Natasha Teakle.
