Making innovative agribusiness ideas a reality!

As part of ICCo’s initiative to foster agribusinesses in East and North-East India, we are hosting the “Agri-Business Connect”.

Making innovative agribusiness ideas a reality!

This event will provide a unique networking opportunity for agri-enterprises, investors, leading agribusiness professionals from the government, non-government and private sector. 

In order to further upscale agri-food chains in India, the right ecosystem needs to be in place. In this context, our event will look at ways of upgrading value chains by empowering enterprises and integrating them in strategic partnerships, including impact investment. In addition, as part of the closing event of Green Business Challenge 2016 , that aimed to bring together 100 promising agri start-ups, we will also seek to identify, finance, and foster the most outstanding agri-entrepreneurs with innovative ideas and entrepreneurial minds.
