About the Organizer :

Amaethon is the largest Food & Agribusiness Summit in the entire Asia-Pacific region, organized at IIM Ahmedabad. Synonymous with excellence and a continuous quest for innovation, the summit provides an interactive platform which brings together industry captains, prominent academicians and future leaders of the agribusiness world. These thought leaders come together to underscore the opportunities and challenges in agribusiness, enlighten aspiring leaders about the requisite skill sets and help better the way in which the agribusiness world functions.

 Problem Statement:


Agriculture in India is plagued by some serious issues, resulting in abject poverty in a country that is fast emerging as a leader in many other arenas. Poverty in India can be solved if her Agriculture is solved. What is required is a fresh perspective and a new start!

Participants from across the world will work towards solving a select bunch of fundamental problems faced by Indian Agriculture and the best ones will be given the opportunity to fly down* to India during Amaethon 2016 (January 15-17, 2016) to present their ideas before leaders comprising corporate, academia and policy makers.
