Beef Australia 2018 targeting entrepreneurs with ‘Pitch in the Paddock’ idea

Beef Australia 2018 is inviting leading ag-tech entrepreneurs to pitch their innovative business ideas.

Agriculture technology innovators with smart ideas are being invited to pitch their start-up concepts to industry stakeholders, influencers, media, and customers at Beef Australia 2018’s initiative, ‘Pitch in the Paddock’, in Rockhampton in May. 

Anybody that’s  a stand-out entrepreneur or start-up, with an idea or existing product/service that can make a real difference in the beef industry, has the opportunity to submit an application to present at Beef Australia. 

The idea will then be showcased to a panel of leading business minds and industry experts.

Beef Australia 2018 chair, Blair Angus, said the beef industry is always evolving, and is currently in a state of heightened growth and innovation.

“There are so many different ideas and ways to approach growing the world’s best beef,” he said.

“Beef Australia is setting the pace when it comes to inviting and encouraging innovators to present their next big idea.

“I am very excited about this concept, and the opportunity to find our next ground-breaking agricultural entrepreneur whose cutting-edge approach can help shape the landscape of beef.”

Beef Australia is seeking seemingly complex business models/concepts, service or products that are explained within three minutes with clarity and credibility by entrepreneurs and business owners who have industry experience and/or knowledge, and are passionate about the opportunities their business will create.

Applications for Pitch in the Paddock will open on February 12, 2018, and close on March 9, 2018.
