The personalized insider newsletter for all things startup in New Zealand.

This week we focus on what’s happening in food, fibre and agritech and why there’s never been a better time to start a business in this sector.
Here’s why investment in food tech and agritech is heating up right now. Also, find out why the Japan market is huge for agritech in this week’s webinar from NZTE and AgritechNZ. NZ Entrepreneur Magazine has prepared a useful article about the Rabobank Foodbytes initiative. The programme aims to build connections and collaboration between startups, corporate leaders, investors and farmers to implement solutions to food system challenges.
If you are in the Garden City on 11th May, be sure to register for the Food, Fibre and Agritech Supernode Challenge Awards event. Anyone from the startup, tech and innovation community is welcome at this free event. Keen on collaborative problem solving for the farming and food industry? Check out the GroundUp platform.
The Field Days Innovation Awards applications are now open. Showcase your agritech innovation in front of the farming community and be in to win cash prizes.
