Agriculture and food tech accelerator SparkLabs Cultiv8 has selected 10 new startups for its 4th cohort.
The global Sparklabs Group invests in early-stage companies and each startup will receive up to A$100,000 in seed funding.
This year’s group includes a CSIRO project using seaweed in livestock feed to reduce their methane production, a consumer app to help decision making, a company making honey without bees, and packaging technology to reduce single use plastic in the supply chain.
Partner Jonathon Quigley said they had applicants from across the planet and “the level of sophistication of these early-stage ag and food-tech startups, solving issues facing our food production systems was extraordinary”.
Program Director Graham Bougen said the overseas ventures keen to break into the Australian market.
