The Ministry of Agriculture, in partnership with Innovate BC, hosted the 2nd Agritech Innovation Challenge and sought technology solutions that serve the needs of the Province’s agriculture, agrifood and seafood industries. 

A total of $150,000 in funding was awarded to the winners of the Agritech Challenge. In addition to seed funding, winners received mentorship support, Market-Validation Training (MVT) through the Agriculture Venture Acceleration Program, and other opportunities, to produce and demonstrate a proof-of-concept. Winners of the Challenge were invited to pitch their solutions at Ag Innovation Day in January 2020 at the Pacific Agriculture Show in Abbotsford.
