Pitch Night at CSU in Wagga Wagga


Monday, 26 Mar 2018

New business ideas to create new products and ideas for the agricultural sector will be ‘pitched’ to an audience on Monday 26 March at the AgriTech Incubator at Charles Sturt University (CSU) in Wagga Wagga.

Eight emerging entrepreneurs from the Riverina have been developing their ideas for the past eight weeks through the AgriTech Incubator program.

They’ve been working on business concepts ranging from the development of apps and software platforms to support agricultural producers and suppliers, to developing new food products to diversify farming income, a financial support service, and new methods for enhancing travellers’ health.

AgriTech Incubator project leader Professor John Mawson said “The AgriTech Incubator program offers a great opportunity for start-up founders to test and refine their business concepts in a supportive collaborative environment.

“Participants from our first cohort in 2017 continue to develop novel products and services, and we look forward to growth of this second students to emerge from our program.”

The AgriTech Incubator is funded by the NSW Department of Industry with significant additional funding from CSU. The AgriTech Incubator is also available to be used as a co-working, event and meeting space. Further details are available by emailing agritechincubator@csu.edu.au.

The AgriTech Incubator Pitch Night will be held from 7pm to 9pm on Monday 26 March in building 6 near car park 11, Tooma Way, CSU in Wagga Wagga.
