AgriFutures Australia and startup.business have launched a new school pilot program that embraces innovative and entrepreneurial thinking in seven high schools across Australia.
The AgriFutures™ startup.business pilot program provides Year 9 and 10 students with a number of agricultural challenges, such as water supply and animal traceability, and encourages them to brainstorm and pitch solutions.

The schools participating in the pilot are:

- Kempsey High School, NSW
- Ulladulla High School, NSW
- Loxton High School, SA
- Pyramid Hill College, VIC
