We’re heading to Israel with 11 agtech companies

The first Startup Catalyst Mission to Israel is about to take off from Brisbane on 5th August for 7 days on the ground in Tel Aviv.

The mission is being funded by Advance Queensland, who have sponsored flights and accommodation for 11 Queensland-based agtech companies, chosen from a competitive online selection process.  The 11 companies spread across Brisbane, Gold Coast, Cairns, and Outback Queensland, and cover a broad range of digital, hardware and bio technology products and services. Startup Catalyst is leading the mission, and a representative from the Queensland Government will also be attending.

The mission is being designed and delivered by Austrade via the Australian Landing Pad in Tel Aviv. The schedule includes meetings, briefings, and workshops with the Australian Landing Pad, SOSA, the Australian Embassy, Government officials, PepsiCo and other multinationals, as well as social and networking events.

    Great to see things are shaping up well. Look forward to experiencing Israel and more importantly learning how it does innovation. I’m sure a true eye opener.
