The International Conference on Business Models in Agriculture

March 25 – 28 2024, Kigali Convention Centre

Join the Transformation: IBMA 2024

In 175 non-developed nations, 40% endure <$2/day, their livelihoods tied to agriculture. But the struggle continues. The need for change is undeniable.

 

The key lies in dedicated business models that unlock the potential of agro-technologies, funds, and resources. That's why we invite you to the groundbreaking 2nd International Conference on Business Models in Agriculture (IBMA) 2024. This event marks a historic leap forward for agriculture in non-developed economies.

 

At IBMA 2024, you'll join a movement transcending charity and exploitation. Your presence and insights will contribute to fostering effective business models that drive prosperity, addressing pressing issues like investment, agro-industrialization, regenerative agriculture, and women and youth empowerment.

By participating, you plant the seeds of change and sow the future of organized-prosperous rural communities. Your legacy will be one of transformation from the despair of poverty to the promise of a thriving agricultural sector.

 

Join us in Kigali, Rwanda, from March 25th to 28th, 2024. Together, we'll shape the future of agriculture, fostering sustainable change and moving from solitary individuals to empowered, prosperous communities.

 

Your presence matters. Let's sow the seeds of prosperity together.

 

See you in Kigali,

About IBMA 2024

Theme: Reshaping Agribusiness Models for Building Prosperous Rural Communities

 

In response to non-developed economies' pressing challenges, we proudly introduce the 2nd International Conference on Business Models in Agriculture (IBMA) 2024. This pioneering event is a pivotal platform for open dialogue and exchanging groundbreaking ideas to catalyse rapid and meaningful change in these economies' agriculture sectors.

 

Guided by the principles of an open lab and disruptive business models, IBMA 2024 is dedicated to fostering the essential transformations these economies' agriculture urgently requires. By bringing together minds from around the world, we aim to create an environment that fuels significant advancements in the agriculture sector, moving us from the isolation of poverty to the cohesion of prosperity.
