An agritech incubator and innovation space Farm491 has set up a series of virtual webinars to help farm businesses adapt practical solutions to the challenges presented during lockdown.
The organisation, based at the Royal Agricultural University, has developed a series of online webinars to offer support to agritech and agri-food entrepreneurs on topics such as employment law and trading in difficult circumstances.
Sarah Carr, Farm491’s innovation specialist, highlighted Farm491 wanted to offer support as widely as possible during this challenging time.
She said: “Businesses across the UK are facing unprecedented times, whether they are fearing for the future of their business or facing increased demand, and we are using the months ahead to support businesses virtually as best we can.”
National law firm Ashfords will be hosting two webinars exclusive to Farm491 members, which will provide an opportunity to ask top professionals questions, including IP experts and employment law specialists.
But non-members will also be able to take advantage of sessions which focus on providing businesses with the support and tools needed to transform their agritech concept into a product or service beneficial to the agricultural industry.
In collaboration with the Innovation Beehive, Farm491 will be hosting three webinars looking at insights for agri innovation.
Ms Carr added the webinars would now provide entrepreneurs with the opportunity to gain ‘new skills and insight’ and be armed with the knowledge to become stronger during an unprecedented time.
