24-Hour Startup AGTech powered by Cultivator

24-Hour Startup AGTech powered by Cultivator

How it Works

Build an AGTech startup in 24 hours! Ideate, form teams, build a product, and pitch to judges for a chance to win $4000 in prizes.

This year's Canada's Farm Progress show is putting business and technology innovators together by partnering with Cultivator, Canada's first credit union led incubator. We're bringing together the best and brightest in agriculture, talented entrepreneurs and business leaders, developers and technical experts, as well as designers and marketing gurus to solve real problems facing the agricultural industry. Very few events allow this diverse group to converge together and build something and we're here to change that. 

In just 24 hours, you will experience the rollercoaster of highs and lows that are a part of everyday startup life. As you learn how to build a real company, you'll meet some of Saskatchewan's top mentors, entrepreneurs, and supporters who are ready to help you launch. Participants may be designers, coders, engineers, or general business visionaries. They will have the opportunity to work together, create a business plan, and ship a product in 24 hours with the support of entrepreneurs and ag industry mentors. The best pitches at the end of the event win cash prizes.
