“It was an invaluable opportunity for the growth of our business, not only opening doors to investment and partnerships, but allowing us to talk directly to the people who will use and benefit from our technology – potential customers,” Ms Morton said.

“We spoke to around 30 wool producers at evokeAG. 2023 in Adelaide and met a large sheep machinery manufacturer who we are in discussions with about potential opportunities.

“I couldn’t recommend the Program more and would strongly encourage any startups in the agrifood sector to apply. Not only did it help meet immediate needs, but helped grow our network of researchers who will be excellent collaborators in the future when we complete a future food campaign.”
