Another One For The Books: 24 Hour Startup Agtech

Last week, we teamed up with Canada’s Farm Show to deliver a virtual 24 Hour Startup AgTech bringing together Canada’s best + brightest in ag, tech, and design to build innovative solutions to real ag problems!

In just 24 hours, we:

  • Connected 50+ participants, mentors, judges and volunteers 👨‍💻👩‍💻
  • Saw 400+ pitch finale attendees spanning from Bruno SK to Mumbai, India 🗺
  • Awarded up to $7K Prizes 🏆

Participants formed into 5️⃣ teams, conducted market research, sat down with expert mentors, built MVPs, and pitched their ideas to a panel of judges to viewers across the world, and truly showcased why SK is the place to be.

“The future is so bright for what we can do in this province, and we have every advantage possible” – Dan Cugnet, 24 Hour Startup AgTech Participant

And to top it all off, we announced the launch of an Agtech Accelerator in partnership with Economic Development Regina + Emmertech, solidifying SK as a global agtech hub! Learn more.
