Promoting Entrepreneurship and Agribusiness Development Course


Entrepreneurship and Agribusiness Development are the best hope for reviving weak world economies. Entrepreneurs cannot do it alone; they need an enabling environment in which their business can grow. This course is designed to give insights into the basic requirements for increasing the level of entrepreneurship in communities at local and national levels.

In order to build the capacity of Development professionals who are actively engaged in the Agriculture and food security activities in governmental and non-governmental organizations to support efforts in improving survival rates of Agribusinesses that currently have a high rate of failure, (I.e.  70 to 80 per cent of new businesses end their operations in their first year. And of those that survive, only half remain in business after five years), this one week course will provide hands-on training in Entrepreneurship and Agribusiness Development and the application of Knowledge to decision making in Entrepreneurship and Agribusiness Development planning and Management.

The workshop offers intensive training that will enable the learner to know how to address these challenges. It focuses on the things entrepreneurs care most about, and that ultimately affect their bottom line: How to raise money, make money, save money and help others to do so.
