Program Structure
AgriTech Ideation workshop brings together entrepreneurs who have already come up with an idea and want to validate it and take it to the next level.

During the 3 days the entrepreneurs work with the experts, mentors and investors guided by facilitators using rapid prototyping and open space methodology.

The workshop culminates on day 3 with presentations of solutions developed from the idea and presented to a larger forum and based on peer and expert selection of 6 ideas that will be admitted to our ImpactLab to work further on their idea.
Benefits
As a participant, you will join a group of likeminded peers, receive feedback from experts on how you can improve and grow your idea, network with other key people within your sector. Most importantly
you will have a framework on how you can execute on your idea.

At the end of it you will also gain the opportunity to get one of the 6 slots to have you and your team incubated at The GrowthHub’s Impact Lab to work further on your idea for 6 -8 weeks.
