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.
