Who we are

AGRO INNOVATION LAB is the innovation hub of the RWA group and the Raiffeisen Lagerhaus cooperatives.

Currently we are not open for applications for our Startup Accelerator Program. The next program will take place in 2017. We will keep you updated.

With more than 1,000 distribution sites in Austria and subsidiaries throughout the Danube region our clear goal is to be the partner of choice for innovations and innovative services in the field of agriculture in Central, Eastern and Southeastern Europe.


What we do

For entrepreneurs, our accelerator program offers the broad agro-specific and entrepreneurial know-how of our selected trainers and mentors, a brilliant network and very useful resources. In our pre-seed package we support the development of an idea into a detailed business model.

For farmers and other customers, our Agro Innovations business unit offers innovative services and products.


What we are looking for

We are looking for teams worldwide who are working on a technology, product or solution that can be used in the field of agriculture.

These teams will be supported both optimising their prototypes and expanding their markets.

Agro Innovation Lab as a startup

Agro Innovation Lab is not only a platform for startups and entrepreneurs, we are a startup ourselves.

We were founded in January 2016 as a 100 % subsidiary of RWA. Since the beginning of April we have been offering a range of photographic and other services with our drone “Speedy” and plan to take about 3,000 soil samples this year with our soil sampler “Ranger” in order to give farmers optimum advice about how to fertilise their fields.

Our objective for the future is the constant expansion of our innovative service and product portfolio. This is why we are looking for innovative ideas, services, products and solutions from all over the world that can be used in the field of agriculture.
