How to Startup In AgriBusiness
.. Sometimes you just have to shut your mouth, open your ears and get on with the job– Tweet
Justin Webb has really gone through all of the steps to get his startup going. I am a big believer that Australia needs to be a leader in Agriculture. By all accounts we are along with New Zealand and the UK. Now, people like Justin and AgriWebb are taking the next step.
Throughout the conversation it is very apparent that Justin is a very intelligent guy. Importantly he is then putting that to good use. With a family history of farming he is well equipped with the knowledge and through his own studies and following his hero – dad – he has learnt plenty of skills. Add to that Justin has a great team around him, co-founder and tech people. All the right ingredients.
AgriWebb is a genuine tool already in use with many users. With an initial funding round that has allowed the company to go through development and now a larger funding round that is almost complete. Which also goes to show that investors are keen on the idea.
The plans for AgriWebb are to go global. But as Justin pointed out, there are applications that the platform can be be used for in other industries. Big Time Startups is excited to watch and follow this growing story…..
