9 Augustt 2022 –
Findex and the Australian Agritech Association (AusAgritech) have today announced their new partnership, with Findex joining the Association as Corporate Partners to bolster support of the rapidly growing sector and partner with the Australian Agritech Ecosystem Survey.
Findex is one of Australia’s leading providers of integrated financial advisory and accounting services and parent company of Crowe Australasia (Crowe). With more than 100 offices throughout regional, rural and metropolitan Australasia, Findex combines local insight with global reach to provide integrated finance and advisory solutions that enrich the lives of our clients and the communities they live in.
Findex has joined AusAgritech in recognition of the outstanding potential of the Association’s members and the potential $40Bn per annum value accretion that the sector can add to the Australian economy. Chris Carey, Chief Growth Officer for Findex, said they were proud to partner with AusAgritech in accelerating the growth and national understanding of this key technology sector.
“Findex has a long history of supporting innovation in the tech and start-up sectors. In 2016 we founded Australian AgTech accelerator, SproutX, to support agritech startups through accelerator and pre- accelerator programs. Since then, SproutX has helped agritech startups generate over $17m in revenue and raise more than $15m in venture capital.”
While still a young sector, agritech’s growth potential on a national and international level should not be underestimated and value should be placed on better understanding the existing impact of the agritech ecosystem.
Chris continued, “More than 20,000 of Findex’s clients operate in the Agricultural sector, so partnering with AusAgritech to help the sector build technologies that deliver growth and sustainability for agribusiness is well aligned to the interests of our clients. We are excited to collaborate with AusAgritech so we can continue our support of agritech companies and align them with our clients to connect insights and data that will help grow the sector.”
Tracey Martin, CEO of AusAgritech, said that while still a young sector, the backing of heavyweight partners like Findex demonstrates agritech’s growth potential on a national and international level.
“The Association and its members agree that the contribution of agritech to the Australian economy should not be underestimated, and with Findex joining AusAgritech as Corporate Partners we are more confident than ever that we will be able to work together to track, analyse and demonstrate the impact of agritech on the national economy.”
“We are proud and excited to partner with Findex to deliver these national level projects and initiatives, which will have profound impact on not only the future of agritech, but Australia as a whole.”
