We’ve teamed up with Canada’s Farm Show to bring 24 Hour Startup | AGTECH to the biggest stage in Agriculture! As a participant, you will experience the rollercoaster of highs and lows that are part of everyday startup life, all in just 24 hours! As you work to build an innovative agtech startup with your team, you’ll meet expert mentors and learn from some of the best in the industry, who will be ready to help you launch your business solution.


This event is designed to connect the agtech startup dream team of agriculture industry professionals, farmers, ranchers, innovators, entrepreneurs, business professionals, developers, tech gurus, and design and marketing all-stars.


24 Hour Startup | AGTECH brings together the best and brightest in agriculture, technology, and business from across the country to pitch ideas, form teams, and build a minimum viable product (MVP) in just 24 hours – and possibly create the next big Agtech startup to come from Canada! This diverse group will converge at Canada’s Farm Show where they will build a solution for the future of ag. After 24 hours, teams will pitch to a panel of judges for a chance to win cash prizes!



International Trade Centre

1700 Elphinstone Street – Regina, SK.


The event is called 24 Hour Startup, spanning from June 17 to June 18 — you can stay up all night, however, you will be asked to leave the event space after 10 p.m. and return to your accommodations/home for the night. The doors will re-open again at 7:00 a.m. for you to join your team and continue working until the finale.


Canada’s Farm Show has partnered with Cultivator to showcase the next wave of agriculture innovation in Canada. Agtech is one of the fastest-growing industries, and what better place to host 24 Hour Startup than an international stage in front of ag professionals, producers, and showgoers! 24 Hour Startup was created to connect innovators with the designers, developers, and entrepreneurs that are crucial to bringing an idea to life. The need and opportunity for technological advancement in the agriculture industry continue to grow as the demand for feeding the world increases.


Connect — Meet other motivated individuals in the industry, expand your network, and maybe even meet your next co-founder or mentor! It’s amazing to see not only the products but the relationships that come from this event each year!

Ideate — Take that idea you’ve kept sidelined and bring it to life! Don’t have an idea? Join a team.

Build — You can only learn so much from reading and talking about entrepreneurship – the best way to learn is by doing it!

Pitch — Teams pitch to a panel of expert judges and see if their startup might survive beyond the weekend!
