Since winning Pitch in the Paddock at Beef Australia in 2018, ProAgni have gone on to win the Global Edison Foundation Award for innovation, become a finalist in the Future Food Asia awards (over 200 applicants), become a semi-finalist in the Tesco Agri T-Jam (170 applicants) and are currently sitting in the top 15 for Rabobank’s FoodBytes (350 applicants).
ProAgni Cofounder Robert Bell said, “the success we had after Pitch in the Paddock was not just from the competition itself – it’s about the connections you make, the exposure you gain, the confidence you build and the opportunities these deliver. While it was daunting to walk in to the room in Rocky and deliver a five minute pitch, it also provided a great boost in confidence for our business to have a room full of peers listen to our story
Pitch in the paddock is a fantastic competition, participating certainly delivered huge value to ProAgni and I would encourage all budding start-ups to be brave and have a go” said Mr Bell.
