Sprout AgriTech is a new business accelerator programme designed to fund the next generation of agritech start-ups in New Zealand. Sprout has one goal in mind – to help entrepreneurs grow global agritech businesses from New Zealand.
As the only agritech accelerator in New Zealand, Sprout is managed by The BCC (Building Clever Companies) and is based in Palmerston North.
Sprout’s five-month programme was designed by studying the journeys of successful agritech start-up companies. Throughout the programme the start-ups and entrepreneurs receive funding, alongside world-class mentorship and training from leaders in technology, research and business growth.
At the end of the programme, start-ups have an opportunity to pitch to a hand-picked group of investors, corporate partners and potential customers to support the continuation of the rapid progress achieved through the Sprout programme.
