Unnoty is an accelerator program working with high potential agro based SMBs (Small and Medium Businesses) which mainly takes three problems into account that the agro based entrepreneurs face-
- Lack of Formal Business Knowledge
- Absence of Forward Market Opportunities
- Access to Finance
As an accelerator program, this aims to accelerate growth of the agro based SMBs by solving these three main problems through three major components.
- Capacity Building
- Forward Market Linkage
- Linkage with Financing Agents
Through the capacity building activities, the program enables the agro-entrepreneurs to have a comprehensive idea about developing strong and sustainable business models. This helps them become suitable for the forward market. Concurrently, the program also connects the agro based entrepreneurs to the large institutional buyers which helps them expand into new markets.
