For the duration of the 12 weeks, successful candidates will partake in business development workshops, investor readiness training, mentoring from business advisors and industry experts, guest speakers and facilitated introductions to AgTechUCD’s venture capital and business angle networks.

The programme will commence in October and be held at the new AgTechUCD innovation centre.

This opportunity could be a turning point for startups in these sectors, as it opens doors to funding, resources, and invaluable guidance that can help them turn their ideas into successful ventures. The agricultural and food sectors are constantly evolving, and the integration of technology and innovative solutions is becoming increasingly vital for sustainable growth.

Not only will successful applicants get access to advice and leaderships from the sectors experts, but they will also get access to UCD Lyons Farm’s incubator facility and on- farm testing for innovative goods and services.

Among the 19 startups that have completed the programme over the last two years are Cotter Agritech, Farm Fayre, MyGug and Proveye.
