Agripreneur: An agripreneur is an entrepreneur whose main business is agriculture or agriculture related. The term simply derives from this,
Agriculture + Entrepreneur = Agripreneur.
Agripreneurship is a sector that includes both
agricultural and farming-related commercial operations. Agripreneurship is
a type of business that encompasses all of the stages involved in getting
an agricultural product to market, from manufacturing to processing to
distribution. All elements of generating an agricultural product must be
examined and improved by an agripreneur. Agricultural goods might range
from animal products to harvesting fruits and vegetables.
Some even go the extra mile to engage in value addition processes such as processing and packaging. Overall agripreneurship differs from traditional farming in the sense that it diverts from the subsistence level farming approach to a much more innovative process in which agripreneurs search for ways to make venues commercially viable and profitable in the long term where they have to continually explore methods to add value and growth into their business.
