Pitch Competition

Are you:

  • A female problem solver?
  • Interested in technology? Or even agri-tech? 
  • In years 7/8 or 9/10 at school?

If you answered ‘yes’ then we need you!

We have developed online training to help you through the whole process. Click the button below to get started.

The Women in Agri-Tech Pitch Competition training will guide you though coming up with your own solution to a problem faced by the agricultural industry. 

You will then pitch that idea in a 3 minute video and go into the running to win:

  • A share of the $5,000 worth of cash prizes
  • An online innovation bootcamp where you will learn even more about developing ideas and becoming an entrepreneur!

You can find out more about the competition by downloading this flyer.
