Agricultural Innovation in Victoria

11 June 2016

What a difference twelve months makes!

 

From a 3 man operation to 12 full-time employees, 13 customers, to over 225, including at least 1 in every state in Australia and from 4.6k animals under management to now over 900k animals on the AgriWebb NoteBook.

 

What a difference twelve months makes!

 

From a nervous, and admittedly shaky, investment pitch to being the subject of the investment case study at the AgriVictoria Summit the last twelve months have been a whirlwind for AgriWebb, and we wouldn’t change a thing.

Thank you to the Agri Victoria Summit for a fantastic day and to PwC for their continued support and assistance in navigating the hurdles and challenges facing today’s agricultural startups.

 

We were privileged to hear and learn from speakers that included David Smorgon, Professor David Lamb, Peter Tuohey, Matt Linnegar, Airlie Trescowthick and many more distinguished speakers.

 

Being all too familiar with the process that is fund raising and the stress that comes with a 5-minute pitch to an entire room of, you hope, potential investors we could not have been more impressed with the pitches given by this year “Seeking Investment” participants.  Without innovators and entrepreneurs like these people, the agricultural industry could not move forward!

 

We applaud you;

 

TomCar Australia

 

“Well . . . . . Dad is going to want one of these for the property” – John Fargher, Co-Founder, AgriWebb
“The founders of Tomcar Australia came across the original Tomcar back in 2004. The first time they drove an early vehicle sideways across a 50 degree slope, they were hooked.  Now, over ten years later, Tomcar Australia is in full production making modern vehicles in Melbourne with our manufacturing partner MTM Auto.

It’s been a hard graft, but we’ve always believed in what we’re doing and the need for a tougher, safer and simpler off road utility vehicle.”

This brother and sister team of Alicia & Pete are the epitome of the innovative and entrepreneurial spirit the Australian agricultural industry needs more of.   This incredible family operated startup has combined the product the family loves and produces with an undeniable entrepreneurial drive and the resulting business is, in our minds, sure to be a winner!

The Farm Table

While not part of the “Seeking Investment” portion of the summit The Farm Table deserves your attention and it’s founder Airlie Chescowthick deserves your respect and admiration.  While juggling at least one other job Airlie has created an online platform that will allow farmers and agricultural industry professionals the ability to locate, use and learn from the available technology, information and teachings that are quickly becoming available online!

It was a pleasure to listen to and then get the opportunity to speak with this incredibly humble entrepreneur.  We applaud and admire what she has already, and will continue to, accomplish.
