    Agribusiness Training

    In this Agribusiness bootcamp, participants will learn critical-thinking exercises and business frameworks to build a sustainable venture in the agribusiness supply chains, while building wealth in their community. Participants will gain concrete skills of creating a business in agriculture with insight from industry experts addressing supply chain management, supplier development, value-addition, and partnerships.

    There will be group activity focused on getting entrepreneurs to think critically. It may be fast-paced for some, but we promise it will be a fun group interaction with videos and critical-thinking exercises to get you to think outside the box. Many entrepreneurs will have questions; we encourage questions that may be keeping you from scaling or growing your idea. What does it take to take an idea from concept to reality? How do you get funding? What if I fail? These questions and others will be addressed.

    So, are you ready for this journey?
