GrowAgri Supporting the growth of Agri-Tech within Worcestershire
GrowAgri is an innovative new project that offers support for businesses by encouraging growth and diversification into new markets through a combination of mentoring, seminars and one-to-one advice.
We aim to support businesses operating both outside and within the agri-tech, agri-food and related sectors to encourage business growth, increased productivity, introduction of new products, processes and services and diversification into new markets.
The Agri-Tech sector is strategically important for the growth of the Worcestershire economy. We are supporting businesses in this industry to adopt new technology, implement new processes and develop new services in order to transition into the modern, technology enabled business the future demands.
How will we achieve this?
We are supporting businesses by providing FREE technology demonstrations, seminars and workshops, one-to-one advice, grant funding and comprehensive signposting and support to access additional services in Worcestershire.
Who is eligible?
If you have a product or service that could be adapted or improved for use in the horticultural or agricultural sector, you are most likely eligible! If your business is within the agri-tech/agri-food sector and based in Worcestershire, then we would definitely like to hear from you.
