Report Issues

Can disruptive technology by the Agritech StartUps bring a change for farmers in India?

Agripreneurs 2016 campaign by TheMentorpreneurs in association with our ecosystem partners - ByTheStartups aims to address these issues via a campaign which will be launched as crowdfunding campaign over crowdfunding platform. The campaign will bring awareness to the masses on the critical situations of the farmers as well as various means of water conservation, nature conservation, organic farming methods, etc. It will also raise funds from general public which will be utilised to technologically empower farmers. In this we would first identify the Agritech startups /entrepreneurs and shortlist a few to be launched on crowdfunding platform for raising funds. The funds raised would be used to buy the technology from these entrepreneurs who would be then donated to the farmers in need.

Agricultural development programmes initiated by the Tamil Nadu Government have helped the farmers to increase productivity. The government has started four colleges including the Horticultural College for Women in Trichy and three other Agricultural Colleges in Pudukottai, Thanjavur and Thiruvannamalai to cater the needs of farming community.

TheMentorpreneurs in association with our ecosystem partners - ByTheStartups will invite Startups / Entrepreneurs in the Agritech Sectors who can bring in a disruptive changing idea. Depending on the product/services they will be given two platforms to display (AgriShowcase and AgriPitch). Entrepreneurs can use AgriShowcase to demonstrate their product and it’s benefits to the audience. AgriPitch would help startups pitch in front of the esteemed investor jury for funding. This will encourage more entrepreneurs to come forward and look at our agricultural sector and bring the technological change for the benefit of the society and the country. The primary focus of these Startups will be in areas of income, increase in productivity, farmer prosperity, best practices in farming, agricultural supply chain improvement, Cold Chain transportation, Storage optimization, agri finance, Equipment finance, etc.

Apart from this Agripreneurs will also have talks, Panel discussion on various topics followed by an Award ceremony.
