NIABI Best Practices Seminar Series

The Network of Indian Agri-Business Incubators (NIABI) invites all enthusiastic agripreneurs to participate in a seminar on Inspiring agribusiness start-ups LIVE through video conferencing on October 12, 2011 at 0930hrs.

The following are the distinguished speakers for the seminar who transformed others lives through their startup inititatives:

Dr Dinabandhu Sahoo, Project Chilika

Dr Dinabandhu Sahoo is a marine biologist who stepped out of his laboratory and into the real world. Through Project Chilika, Dr Sahoo has trained villagers in Orissa to ‘farm the ocean’ thus sowing the seeds of a true ‘Blue Revolution’-a new hope for millions across the world.

Mr Satyajit Singh, Shakti Sudha Industries

Mr Satyajit Singh was comfortably placed in life, distributing consumer durables. Yet, one fine day he shut down that business, to take on the challenge of commercialising makhana.  In doing so, he has found a mission if life and brought benefits to thousands of marginalised farmers.

Mr Samar Gupta, Trikaya Agriculture

Mr Samar Gupta was a city boy with no burning ambition in life. But when life threw up a challenge, he decided to face it head on. Over the last decade Trikaya Agriculture has grown from a hobby into a flourishing business, ever expanding the frontiers of ‘what can be grown’ in India.
