What We Do
Agribusiness Entrepreneurship Training
We offer Free agribusiness bootcamp training to entrepreneurs, farmers, startups, and SMEs who are in the agribusiness verticals. Our bootcamps teach the average person how to build a sustainable agribusiness venture using various critical-thinking exercises and business frameworks. There will be a lot of group activity focused on getting entrepreneurs to think outside-the-box.
Supplier Development Training
We have trainings and workshops throughout the year to help SMEs understand the complexities to becoming a supplier to a multinational. Multinationals have complex and rigorous quality standards to be a part of their supply chain; through our partnerships we can assist SMEs and startups on identifying opportunities to become a quality supplier.
