CSBP and Plum Grove to sponsor WA agtech program

AgriStart is pleased to announce two WA based agriculture firms as sponsors of the HARVEST agtech accelerator program, starting in early March.

The new sponsors are WA based grain accumulation and export firm Plum Grove, and CSBP Limited, a manufacturer and supplier of industrial chemicals, fertilisers and related services.

CSBP’s Development Manager, Nicole Keating, said "CSBP are keen to support the Harvest program as we believe innovation is a key way to generate new growth and employment in our regional communities. New technologies are creating a lot of new innovation opportunities in agriculture and programs like Harvest play an important part in equipping innovators with the necessary skills, mentoring and networks to take their ideas forward within WA as well as to markets beyond."

Plum Grove were also keen to support the associated CONNECT regional innovation workshops.

HARVEST is a 9 week accelerator program targeting late-stage start-ups and SMEs looking to scale their business, develop new opportunities and export markets. The program will feature a range of expert mentors tailored to the needs of the participants.

Plum Grove and CSBP join the Department of Primary Industries and Regional Development as major sponsors of the HARVEST Accelerator program. 

Applications for HARVEST close soon on 5th February. More information about the program can be found on the HARVEST Accelerator Program webpage.
