This report sheds new light on the ways in which agribusiness incubators are fostering the modernization and scaling-up of agribusiness in the developing world. It examines 10 agribusiness incubators worldwide and compiles good practices. The selected incubators have vastly different business models, scales, and entrepreneurship environments. They include agribusiness value chain and sector development incubators, agricultural research commercialization incubators, and technology transfer incubators, with starting capital amounts ranging from just US$10,000 to $50 million.
These incubators identify and target innovative early-stage enterprises with a high-growth potential and give them access to financing, mentoring, and networks so they can become competitive, sustainable businesses. In the end, the goal is to help their economies transition from agriculture-based to agribusiness- and service-based.
In addition to the study, the researchers have produced a number of capacity-building and outreach materials, including agribusiness incubation training modules and several videos of the case studies.
