HOW TO APPLY FOR KATANA
There are many things you can do in just two minutes – how about launching your business in agrifood?
For KATANA, we are looking for great teams and entrepreneurs that want to change the way agribusiness is done today. In consequence, you don’t need to be an incorporated company nor do you need a concrete product or service idea. All you need to apply is passion and a 2 minutes video in English or with English subtitles focusing on the following categories:
- Your previous experience and current activities
- Your understanding of the dynamics across the value chain
- Your vision for new products/ services
Make sure that you include each of these three categories: Tell us who you are, what you do, how you feel the agrifood sector is changing and – most important – how you see agribusiness in the future. These three categories will also be the criteria for the evaluation of your video during the peer-to-peer process.
After the application deadline, you will yourself be an evaluator of other teams and their pitches. Therefore, you will receive pairs of three videos to rank them according to their strength in the different evaluation categories. Like this, all KATANA applicants will be involved in the selection process and contribute to the decision on who is going to be “in” in April 2017.
