Fostering startups
to drive innovation

At nurture.farm, we have successfully built digital highways to connect the heartlands of India. Since our inception, we have worked on building technologies to help solve the problems across the agri-value chain, covering pre-sowing, sowing, cultivation, harvest, and post-harvest stages. The agriculture industry is at the cusp of a change. Change is evolving, gradual and transformational. But most of all, for change to take effect, it has to be inclusive.

nurture. farm’s catalyst incubation program is a step towards making the change inclusive, impactful, and global. Through the Catalyst incubation program, we intend to support, collaborate and champion budding agtech startups as they break new grounds.

About the Program

nurture.farm Catalyst program will consist of a cohort of five startups each year. Each of these startups will get an opportunity to work together, pool resources, exchange information, and share learnings to foster growth and scale quickly.

In addition to all this, you will get mentorship, training, and advice from the top industry professionals of your industry to help you solve the challenges & grow your business.
