Posted by Media Release Agency on 9th January 2020

Rocket Seeder is a Melbourne-based accelerator for early stage startups in the food and agriculture sector in Australia. Established in 2017, Rocket Seeder supports innovators and founders to take their ideas and early stage businesses to the next level by providing tools, guidance and a safe environment to learn and grow.

Rocket Seeder is delighted to announce the dates of their first accelerator programs in regional Victoria.

Supporting entrepreneurship and innovation is vital to regional and rural areas, as it has the potential to boost local economies. Local talent and other resources are developed and retained, preventing rural populations from declining and allowing these economies to be more selfsufficient and resilient.

The Rocket Seeder team looks forward to receiving applications from new businesses (ideally less than 3 years old) in the North East and South West regions of Victoria. They are looking for ‘innovative’ product or service businesses from across the food and/or agriculture value chain. For examples, please see a list of their 40 alumni teams on their website.
