The XX Factor

Cultivating change through ethical investment

Presented by Startupbootcamp FoodTech Tasmania and FermenTasmania

Step into the future of farming at agriCULTURED Conversations in the City with “The XX Factor: Cultivating Change through Ethical Investment.” Six pioneering startups are set to pitch their visions to a panel of ethical investors, each aligned with the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), paving the way for a more sustainable agricultural landscape.

But it’s not just about urban buzz; it’s about making a tangible difference in rural communities too. Whether you’re a farmer, an entrepreneur, a business person, or someone deeply connected to rural life, this event offers a unique opportunity to be part of a movement toward positive change.

Join us as we bridge the gap between rural and urban, investing in solutions that benefit us all. Let’s harness the power of ethical investment to cultivate a brighter future for agriculture and beyond. Don’t miss out on this chance to be at the forefront of change. Save the date and join us in shaping a more sustainable tomorrow.
