  • Key Challenges

    In May last year, 25 AgTech founders, developers, government, and university leaders jumped on a bus and headed to the Riverland. They visited several farms in the region with the goal of gaining insight into the key problems faced by farmers, and to share and ultimately help each other to understand the possibilities for AgTech solutions.  

    Several key challenge themes were identified on the trip, from picking approaches, to activating vacated land, to the need for better access to data and digitisation. 

    Specific key challenge statements for these themes will be announced shortly. As part of the bootcamp we challenge you to come up with innovative solutions to these problems!  

    To find out more, come along to our upcoming information session.

  • Who can enter?

    The Innovation Bootcamp is open to all. You can join individually or as a part of a team.  You do not have to be based in the Riverland region to take part. You can travel to the region to participate, and we do encourage as many people as possible from both within and outside the region to get involved.  

    If you like to solve problems, generate ideas, and want to be part of community solving challenges to benefit all, then you can participate!

    The Innovation Bootcamp will deliver a series of short workshops delivered by University of Adelaide business school experts, alongside local and Adelaide based facilitators, coaches and mentors.  

    As a participant you will have access to the team of experts including AgTech specialists, software gurus, social entrepreneurs, and local and Adelaide based business professionals. You will be able to talk about your ideas, get real time feedback and support as you move through the weekend.
