Breaking New Ground for Agrifoodtech Entrepreneurs

Sprout is New Zealand's leading agritech and foodtech accelerator and investor.

Established in 2015 the Sprout Accelerator, now Sprout Agritech Ltd, has been going to the trenches with agtech and foodtech entrepreneurs to help them build great teams and global businesses for over 7 years.

We do this by running the Sprout Accelerator twice a year and making up to NZD$1M investments in agritech and foodtech start-ups that are solving some of the agricultural and food value chains' toughest problems.

Find out more about who we are and how we can help you in our Sprout video.

The problem of resourcing, feeding and improving the health of our people and the planet is global headlines.

Feeding more than 10 billion people sustainably by 2050 is anchored in transforming food and agriculture on a global scale.


As an entrepreneur being part of that is a big challenge, however, the opportunity to win is massive. 

Sprout’s entire mission is to get you into that global game and that much closer to making it happen – for you and for the world.
