iBAN workshop on business model innovation

Global | | New Delhi, India

In two sessions, the agribusiness leaders will have a chance to know more about digital innovations for inclusive agribusiness models and look at the inclusive business from the investee perspective.

Session 1: Digitalisation

How to leverage digital innovation and scale up your inclusive agribusiness? The first session will be a peer learning experience with enough space for exchange and discussion of the real-life success stories. As the sector braces for exciting possibilities, the participants of the workshop will have a unique chance to explore new ways to upgrade their inclusive business ventures using digital technologies.

Session 2: Financing

This session will look into financing for inclusive business from the investee perspective. The participants will focus on the following key questions:

  • How to negotiate fair stakes?
  • How to agree upon impact?
  • How to deal with investor impatience?
  • How to deal with paper work and powerpoint overload?
  • How to best leverage investors’ contacts and networks?

Impact investors are usually well organised in global, regional and national associations. They share learnings with like-minded peers to build common standards and practices necessary for the industry to thrive and scale. Meanwhile, the voice of the investees is often missing. This session will change this by bringing the voice of the investees to the discussion and by encouraging exchange between investees from different impact investors.
