Agribusiness Leadership and Disruption
Fee may apply
Disruption is part of every business and ecosystem, and businesses are striving to become the disruptor, and not the victim of disruption. Agribusiness and agro-technology are no exception. Today's agribusiness leaders face one certainty: they are operating in an environment of uncertainty. Consumption is increasing. Resources are dwindling. Delivering stakeholder value is imperative, but so is factoring in the global challenges and trends we collectively face.

The Program will take place April 18-25, 2020 on Stanford University’s campus. The journey starts with a pre-program session, hosted by Cotech and Clara Idea, where participants will get to know each other, identify common interests, foresee potential opportunities for cooperation, and refine their objectives for the upcoming week of immersion on-campus. The journey then continues with a five-day program with Stanford faculty lectures, industry expert panels and site visits, which will help participants instill innovative practices within their organizations and take advantage of emerging disruptions on agriculture and agribusiness. At the end of the week, participants will engage in a post-program Design Thinking session, led by Cotech and Clara Idea, to apply learnings from the program to the Brazilian context and identify opportunities for their businesses in Brazil.
