About the Event
This session is to explore the ideas on farming as an enterprise that has been articulated as the key dimension of Government of India’s Doubling Farm Income report. The last decade has seen the emergence of many social enterprises that seek to address the challenge of agrarian distress through an entrepreneurial route. How effective have these Social enterprises in agriculture been? What are the growth and management challenges these enterprises face? What has been their experience of attracting ‘impact investors’ or is there a case for a relook at ‘patient capital’ through a social stock exchange as suggested by the Finance Minister in her budget speech? How do entrepreneurs balance the social and the commercial goals of the business?
These and many other questions would be addressed in this panel discussion through a combination of perspectives from the editors of the volume that has covered 15 case studies across different regions of India; the enterprises on whom the cases have been written on as well as other actors in the ecosystem – donors, impact investors and reviewers who have studies these enterprises.
