About PGP-AEFB Explaining by Director ISAB

ABOUT THE PROGRAM

Agri entrepreneurship and family business are two intertwined concepts that play significant roles in the agricultural sector.

Agri Entrepreneurship:

  • Agri entrepreneurship refers to the entrepreneurial activities and initiatives within the agricultural sector. It involves identifying opportunities, taking risks, and creating innovative solutions to address challenges in agriculture and related industries.
  • Agri entrepreneurs may be farmers, agribusiness professionals, or individuals outside the traditional agricultural sector who introduce new products, services, technologies, or business models to improve productivity, sustainability, and profitability in agriculture.
  • Characteristics of agri entrepreneurship include innovation, adaptability, resilience, and a willingness to embrace change and uncertainty.
  • Agri entrepreneurs may engage in various activities such as agricultural production, value-added processing, agri-tech startups, agritourism, agricultural marketing, and rural entrepreneurship.
  • Successful agri entrepreneurship contributes to economic growth, job creation, rural development, food security, and environmental sustainability.

Family Business in Agriculture:

  • Family businesses are enterprises owned and operated by members of one or more families. In agriculture, family businesses are prevalent, with many farms and agricultural enterprises being family-owned and managed.
  • Family businesses in agriculture may involve various activities, including crop production, livestock farming, agribusiness operations, food processing, and distribution.
  • Family businesses often have unique characteristics, such as a long-term perspective, commitment to sustainability, emphasis on family values, and integration of family and business interests.
  • Challenges in family businesses in agriculture may include succession planning, intergenerational transition, conflict resolution, governance issues, and balancing family dynamics with business priorities.
  • Despite challenges, family businesses play a vital role in the agricultural sector, contributing to food production, rural livelihoods, cultural heritage, and community development.
