FICCI hosting a two-day agri start-up summit to address concerns that agri start-ups encounter so that they can solve problems of farming sector across value chain.
The industry group FICCI is hosting a two-day conference on agricultural start-ups beginning Thursday, where industry experts and policymakers are expected to address difficulties encountered by these entities and help develop solutions.
‘The ultimate purpose of the summit is to educate, motivate, and resolve the concerns that agri start-ups encounter so that they can solve problems in Indian and global agriculture across the value chain,’ the Federation of Indian Chambers of Commerce & Industry (FICCI) said in a statement.
Due to the huge potential in the farm sector, these start-ups must be appropriately discovered, encouraged, and handled in order to be mainstreamed in the long run, according to FICCI.
This year marks the fourth edition of the summit, which will recognize and award start-ups from all areas of the agricultural value chain for their contributions to developing sustainable and creative solutions. PwC is the initiative’s knowledge partner.
