February 21–22, 2018 | Constitution Club | New Delhi
Introduction

India is predominantly an agrarian economy with 55% population driving its livelihood from agriculture. In the last two decades, powered by the Government policies and strong engagement of the industry and institutions, agriculture is rapidly evolving into agribusiness in terms of approach and structure. However, in the last one decade, the sector has been thronged by the stream of educated youth, fired by the ideas, passion and innovations to launch newer kinds of technology and business models to lift the face of agriculture from primitive to hi-tech one. These start-ups are providing missing links in the agri value chain and delivering efficient products, technologies and services to the farmers on one hand and the consumers on the other hand. From ICT apps to farm automation and from weather forecasting to drones and from inputs retailing and equipment renting to online vegetable marketing, and from smart poultry and dairy ventures to smart agriculture and from protected cultivation to innovative food processing and packaging, it's proliferation of all innovations and technology driven startups set to revolutionize the food and agriculture sector.

Government has also ably supported these startups with programs like Skilled India, Start Up India, Stand Up India, MUDRA to ACABC scheme and Udaan to help budding entrepreneurs start and scale new ventures. However, many of the existing agri- enterprises, despite savoring initial success, are facing difficulties to scale and expand. They are looking for ideas, inspirations and support to scale to newer heights. In this context, ICFA is convening 1st All India Agri Startups Conclave 2018 with the aim to bring all the startups in food and agri space on single platform for sharing of success stories and exploring business and marketing linkages, technology and financial tie-ups and partnership opportunities. The participation of Governments officials and institutions like NABARD, SIDBI, NSDC, SFAC, ICAR, CSIR, UNIDO, IFAD, banks and industry will help Startups and potential agrientrepreneurs with desired policy changes, programs, business modelling and financial participation. The conclave envisages to provide a platform for experience and knowledge sharing, synergies, connects and partnerships, collective and creative thinking to create pro-startups environment for ensuring success and sustainability of upcoming startups and attracting youth towards entrepreneurship in food and agri sectors.
