We propose a session via Zoom with breakout rooms with a mentor/coordinator in each room where we put together, experienced people from the impact investing world/ and ecological food production/distribution with entrepreneurs and agroecological farmers from the region (these we need to invite at a lower fee, if possible).
At Mayma we can organize and attract the mentors and the farmers, although we would love help to attract mentors from your base of allies and friends.
At Mayma we have experience of 4 years, organizing conferences and courses online and via Zoom so we can manage, and we are bilingual also. Our mission is to forge a new economy, that is regenerative, inclusive and collaborative, for 14 years we have organized a program for triple impact entrepreneurs. www.mayma.org.ar and www.emprenderconimpacto.com. This year we launched Mayma Bio, our first program, designed especially for farmers who want to transition to agroecology, and for entrepreneurs in the green and ecological foods value chain.
We are always looking for partner and investors for our entrepreneurs to help us grow in Latam.
We would invite farmers and speakers mostly from Argentina, Chile, Uruguay, and Colombia, where we are working right now.
Our main objective with this session: to link together ecological farmers of Latam, and link them to out of the box thinkers from other parts of the world, as well as investors who might help us all accelerate the change toward clean and healthy food production in the region.
