‘Climate change is no longer some distant risk to future generations. It is here and now.’

Introducing the 2035 Vision Start-up Investment Pitch and Platform

The 2035 Vision platform has been established to support New Zealand, Australian and Pacific Island AgriFoodTech and ClimateTech start-ups accelerate and scale their solutions to enable farmers and growers reduce their greenhouse gas emissions, as well as develop more resilient growing systems to mitigate the impact of our changing climate.

The time is now

Whilst time is short, the region’s start-up community has the ambition and the innovative mindset to meet the challenge. To support and accelerate that ambition, 2035 Vision is launching a major new Investment Programme that will kick off with a Start-up Investment Pitch event at the 2035 Oceania Summit.

Are you ready to step up and make a difference?

A panel of global judges will ask the hard questions. An audience of invited venture and impact investors will ask theirs. Post COP26, the world is looking to you to take a leadership position by delivering real action.

We believe the region’s start-up community holds the key to delivering real change. Whilst our scientific community and major agribusinesses are working hard to develop new technologies to reduce emissions, history has shown that it is the start-up entrepreneur that will often deliver the most disruptive and impactful solution.
