Are you a farmer with a passion for technology and new ideas? SproutX has a new way to get your hands on the latest gear and shape the agtech agenda!
Launched this week, the SproutX Pioneers program is a new initiative which will connect SproutX startups with early-adopter farmers to trial and test new technology on commercial farms.
Becoming a SproutX Pioneer is free, and involves a simple online registration process.
Registrants are also being called on to suggest pain points or problems they need solved on-farm. This feedback will be used to inform the work of teams in the SproutX accelerator program – a new round of which kicks off next month.
Through the Pioneers program, SproutX aims to build a high quality pool of farmer talent who can work with aspiring innovators to refine new ideas and technologies, and put them to through their paces in the field.
This is a critical part of ensuring the success of our local agtech community by giving innovators the benefit of your expertise and experience.
