Leverage youth in your agribusiness as employees or producers and create opportunities for the next generation. As early adopters of tech, youth play a key role in bridging digital efficiency with quality production. Young interns offer fresh perspectives while immersing themselves in the realities of agribusiness and act as a sustainable source of talent to fill core capacity gaps. Understanding and incorporating youth into your business model bolsters your resilience.
The Right Program for You
Led by a team of expert instructors, our Advisory Services are available to potential borrowers and existing lending clients in two formats:
- Centralized Workshops: Expand your network by sharing experiences, exchanging ideas and exploring partnerships with peer companies. Multi-day, interactive sessions provide training on a multitude of topics ranging from climate vulnerability and mitigation to data collection and analysis for decision making, to building inclusive businesses and programs for women and youth. You’ll have opportunities to discuss real cases with other agribusiness leaders, learn from one another, and return home with new ideas for implementation.
- Customized Training: Benefit from one-on-one consulting with experts in the areas you’d like to improve. We will walk you through a participatory assessment that identifies strengths, areas for improvement and clarifies your business priorities. Together, we’ll develop a customized plan, and provide on-site training and coaching for you and your team to put it into action.
Note: We currently offer both preparatory and full service versions of most of our services- we start with you wherever you are! You can take full advantage of our advisory in workshops or introductory sessions before making a longer-term commitment to determine what’s best for you.
