Detachable work shirt sleeves claims the ‘Winning Pitch’ title at the Brilliant Business Kids Festival

Students, teachers and parents from across Australia united at The University of Sydney Business School for a national pitch competition – all with a focus on ideas which addressed agricultural issues. Reducing weeds using drones and making vertical farming more accessible through affordable modular units were just some of the innovative ideas put to the judges.

 

The Brilliant Business Kids Festival was the successful culmination of the AgriFutures startup business pilot program. The program funded seven Australian secondary schools to take part in an exciting education program across one term that taught high school students in rural and regional Australia how to solve problems facing agriculture, using innovation and an entrepreneurial mindset.

A special mention to Wynyard High School who participated.
