Innovators’ Incubation and Acceleration (IIA) Program

Fri-El Ethiopia is proud to announce the launching of its Innovators’ Incubation and Acceleration (IIA) Program. We are offering incubation and acceleration opportunities to a cohort of young innovators in agriculture. Our company aims to support research-based, technology-driven, and scientific innovations that are primarily targeted to increase the yield and quality of products in farming.

Innovators’ Incubation And Acceleration (IIA) Program Details

Contents of the IIA program

Each incubation, acceleration or scaling program is built out of different modules that address the most important needs of the specific group of innovators or companies. Here is a complete overview of the kind of support that will be provided at each stage.

Incubation Modules

Scaling Modules

As each venture takes a different approach and faces different challenges when scaling, we take a holistic, non-prescriptive approach and provide support that is largely tailored to each venture’s needs. The scaling process generally includes six steps.

Market exploration and penetration

We support scaling ventures in market exploration and penetration via trade missions, connections to key advisors and partners in the target markets and by providing access to various forms of financing and/or distribution channels of large corporates.

We believe that the launching of this program will help to improve the commercialization and modernization of agriculture, and the development of an indigenous agribusiness sector while imparting youth with relevant experience and skills. Applications to the next cohort of the IIA program will be announced on our website once they are open.
