SproutX is a national accelerator for ambitious pre-seed to seed stage startups bringing technology to market across the food, agtech, and impact spectrum. SproutX scales the growth of Australian agri/foodtech startups through a highly personalised and curated program, allowing for founders to be ready for investment and/ or export opportunities. The program also provides industry aligned mentorship with an emphasis on one-on-one investor engagements, peer support from entrepreneurs and introductions to vetted service providers who are also ecosystem builders first.

Since 2016, SproutX has invested in 34 portfolio startups through their main 6-month accelerator program. In 2022, SproutX launched their 10-week pre-accelerator program “Business of Agriculture” in a joint effort with the Victorian government to grow the agritech ecosystem. The team has since coached and graduated 68 ambitious future agritech entrepreneurs since then.

Overall, SproutX empowers the humans behind food and agtech through world-class commercialisation support - catalysing connections between Australian founders, investors, industry mentors, agribusiness, academia, and government to affect world-class innovation across the agrifood supply chain.
