    SEARCA Agri-Innovator Program

    SEARCA has embraced the rhythm of change and is aware of the increasing complexities, uncertainties, and nonlinearities of its constantly changing environment. To succeed in this era of change, the Center and its community of stakeholders need to acquire new mindsets and the right capabilities that will equip them for success in Agriculture 4.0. With this, we are pleased to launch The SEARCA Agri-Innovator Program that will promote a Design Thinking mindset for its attendees, and apply it using the Lean Startup methodology. These combinations of mindset and methodology will play a crucial role in helping the participants succeed in their agri-ventures. Applications are open until 7 October 2022. Join us!
