Investing in Agribusiness Primary Production.

Event posted by in AgriProFocus Kenya
  26 April 2017 to 28 April 2017 - All Day Event
  Strathmore Business School

Program Overview

Food scarcity is not a new phenomenon. Food imports into Africa since 2014 have been estimated to be USD 50 Billion. Poor utilization of available arable land fit for agricultural production, post-harvest losses estimated to be at 40%, declining productivity, farm degradation and poor production management are all challenges that investors in agribusiness face.

Other key challenges for these investors include difficulty in marketing their produce, managing their farms while working in cities, evaluating viable agribusiness enterprises to venture into, accessing funding from financiers to fund their agribusiness ventures and falling prey to "fake" consultants, resulting in huge investment losses.

The program is also designed to help potential investors develop the right agribusiness investment ideas, equip themselves with research skills in a dynamic sector, develop viable business plans and manage their farm working capital.

Who should attend?

Title: "Capacity building, employment and job creation for better nutrition and sustainable development in Ethiopia" 21-24 February 2017.

For the upcoming conference, Based on our experience from the first conference held in February 2016, we are paying less attention to presentation of research projects since most of the projects we have received were M.Sc. students’ thesis. We think that such large national audience should discuss issues beyond individual research projects conducted in short time with cross sectional study design. For most of our nutrition graduates, their career is limited by the kind of curriculum we have and the competencies included. Thus, it would be great to hear inputs from our stakeholders about the exiting curriculums. The same
