Global Entrepreneurship Week is a celebration of the innovators and job creators who launch startups that bring ideas to life, drive economic growth and expand human welfare. During one week each November, Network GEN inspires people everywhere through local, national and global activities designed to help them explore their potential as self-starters and innovators.
Future Agro Challenge (FAC) is a global competition that discovers innovate fundable food and agribusiness startups from various corners of the globe addressing national, regional and global challenges. FAC provides key tools and opportunities to help them grow their business and expand them into new markets. FAC, a featured event of Global Entrepreneurship Week, is working to make a difference on a global level by increasing interaction amongst agro innovators, entrepreneurs, and stakeholders by addressing national policies and challenges.
There is not one simple solution to any of the complex global challenges of feeding the estimated growing population of 9 billion people by 2050. FAC was ignited in Greece, at the crossing of three continents, is rich in diversity in both wild and cultivated plant species, has developed its botanical and agricultural practices for millennia, and the source of the famous Mediterranean diet, and has grown into a global competition. As FAC takes root in each joining nation, the knowledge base is enriched with a transfer of ideas and solutions. Each nation and region brings a new perspective, having overcome different obstacles and offering different facets of innovation.
While disruptive solutions are being created across regions, individuals and visionaries often feel overwhelmed by the complexities to integrate in the agricultural ecosystem.
We believe discovering solutions to global challenges should not be so complicated.

Pozible (the Australian crowdfunding platform) has just revamped their website and added a very clever new feature.
They advertise themselves as “Successful crowdfunding for every project” and their point of difference is that the user can create their own crowdfunding platform from within Pozible.
This opens up many opportunities for very small niche projects.
Their new website is slick – with a clever sidebar “Self Help” feature.
Have you got your tickets yet to our “Let’s Get Social” Small Business Week networking event in Mareeba on this Thursday 19th May??
Lots of fun and learn why small business needs social media!
An important part of sustainable, small business success, is access to formal and informal business networks and markets. A successful business owner will constantly open themselves up to new people, experiences and opinions as they seek to embrace new possibilities and remain responsive to a changing market.
