Key stakeholders include micro, small, medium and large agri-companies as well as farmers. The aim of this course is to teach people how to identify areas for innovation specifically within the agri-domain, to create innovation-driven enterprises or to create new business units within an existing company. Particular consideration is given to helping students address:
- Challenges around commercialising innovations (ideas and technologies);
- Business constraints and guidelines (margins, CAGR, lifetime value, COCA, etc.);
- Other difficulties related to getting new agri-products to sizeable markets (“crossing the chasm”).
