Regional Innovation NSW

Activating innovation and startup ecosystems across the agrifood sector in regional NSW

Farmers2Founders works with partners and stakeholders across regional and rural Australia to stimulate innovation and startup ecosystems.

We provide programs and activations to equip entrepreneurs and stakeholders across the agrifood value chain with the capabilities, resources, network and connections necessary for success.

We believe diversity drives innovation.

An important part of our mission is to attract and support individuals, entrepreneurs and talent from diverse backgrounds into the agrifood tech sector.

We actively look to engage and support Indigenous entrepreneurs, female founders (particularly in the tech space) and regionally-based startups and businesses.

This project is funded through the NSW Government’s Accelerating Regional Innovation Fund.

We are partnering with the NSW Government to help grow regional jobs, build vibrant liveable towns, support regional communities and drive economic recovery.
