Chris is the committee secretary of The Australian Agritech Association (AusAgritech) where he works to support the industry of innovators and entrepreneurs building businesses that drive Australian agricultural productivity forward and positions Australia as a leader and exporter of agricultural technology. As a career entrepreneur, Chris is immersed in the startup ecosystem and specialises in deep tech and horticulture.

Chris sees huge potential for Australia to become a global leader in agtech.

“We have some outstanding university research and a proud history of invention in Australia. Inventions like WiFi, the ultrasound scanner and the HPV vaccine all have roots in Australian research institutes. We are one of the top exporters of major commodities like wheat, wool, beef, dairy and wine, and we have some of the largest farms in the world in some of the harshest conditions. We are a nation of hardworking innovators with both the scope of problems to solve and the scale of impact these solutions can bring.”

Chris believes strongly in building a connected and supportive ecosystem.
