The International Crops Research Institute for the Semi-Arid Tropics (ICRISAT) and The Entrepreneur Zone (TEZ) have invited entrepreneurs and innovators to apply for their online agro and food-tech company concept boot camp.
The ICRISAT Agri-Business Incubator (ABI) will host the camp from August 3 to 5. The three-day seminar is designed for entrepreneurs who want to launch an agri- and food-tech startup. Early-stage enterprises in this sector wishing to calibrate their business model can also participate in the boot camp.
‘The seminars will address growing entrepreneurship prospects in the agricultural sector and support participants in formulating the problem statement and value proposition,’ Aravazhi Selvaraj, Chief Executive Officer of ICRISAT’s Agribusiness and Innovation Platform, said in a release.
One-on-one mentorship session
It will also assist participants in developing a business model and offering an overview of the agtech support system. ‘The camp provides entrepreneurs with a venue to explore their company ideas in emerging areas such as agri-fintech, farm-gate value addition, climate change resilience, and adaptation with our experts,’ Selvaraj added.
The program will involve one-on-one mentorship sessions with the ICRISAT and TEZ incubation teams.
