2SCALE organizes an event on November 7, 2017 in Utrecht, “Incubating Agribusiness in Africa”, where they will share five years of experience in agribusiness from 2SCALE.
At the 2SCALE EVENT 2017, entrepreneurs, producer organizations, finance institutions, business coaches and SMEs will all share how they succeed in establishing inclusive agribusiness that is socially-focused, and making a world of difference for the communities in which they operate.
The 2SCALE Event will be facilitated by Marina Diboma, Deputy Managing Director of the Netherlands-African Business Council (NABC).
The Dutch-funded project titled “Toward Sustainable Clusters in Agribusiness through Learning in Entrepreneurship” (2SCALE) started in June 2012. The program manages a portfolio of public-private partnerships (PPPs) that accelerate inclusive business in target agri-food sectors and industries. 2SCALE offers a range of support services to private partners – companies and farmer groups – enabling them to produce, transform and supply quality food products to local, national and regional end-user markets, including Base of the Pyramid (low-income) consumers. 2SCALE strengthens the capacity of smallholder farmers and SMEs to accelerate value chain and private sector development, through innovation and coordinated action, by improving business and organizational skills, including those required for more effective participation in (financial) markets. Partnership agreements are developed with companies doing business in Africa with inclusive business agendas or adding value to selected value chains.
