Call: International Agri & Food and Horticulture & Starting Materials Seed Money Projects (SMPs) 2018
Seed Money Projects serve to initiate (or act as the ‘seed’ for) international partnerships for Dutch SMEs in the Agri & Food and Horticulture & Starting Materials sectors. The creation of a consortium is key in this. The objective is to contribute to the sustainable development of a local agricultural and/or horticultural system. This is conditional on the participation of a local problem owner (a business and/or government) able to point to a demand and necessity for the project. A Seed Money Project results in an international partnership feasibility business model. A good business model is managed and supported by business and must be capable of ‘tempting’ other potential candidate consortium members to participate and thus contribute to international system solutions in the Agri & Food and Horticulture & Starting Materials sectors.

Do you have an idea to ensure food security, decrease malnutrition or prevent famine? Join the #Hack
75% of the world's poor live in rural areas and 2.5 billion people derive their livelihoods from agriculture. However, low agricultural productivity, poor transportation systems and limited policies affect their production and agriculture trade. Today, more than 800 million people worldwide are undernourished, while more than a billion tons of food never make it to the table.
This is exactly where solutions are crucially needed to develop new sustainable agricultural practices, support small-scale and family farmers and allow them equal access to land, technology and markets.
