Helping farmers, growers and food supply chain businesses to pitch their ideas

Posted on: 22/06/2017

The Innovation Hub is running short courses on how to successfully communicate ideas to potential clients and investors.

The Innovation Hub is a unique centre focused on fresh produce and field vegetables, funded by the Eastern Agritech Growth Initiative. It assists farmers and growers, food businesses, and other users wishing to engage in applied research work to reduce or re-use all forms of waste in the food supply chain and improve resource use efficiency in its production.

As part of its activities it is running courses for small businesses (SMEs) that are concerned with fresh produce and field vegetables generally, for example food businesses, food logistics, small engineering, farming, manufacture, waste use and valorisation and related areas.

The aim of these events is to help build your business by improving your ability to communicate your business as an attractive proposition for investors and partners. The events have the added benefit of facilitating networking with those working in a similar space.

Places are limited so book early to avoid disappointment – there is only space for 6 businesses in each event.
