Impact Terra is participating in the Global Entrepreneurship Week

Join us on November 14th!

From the 13th to the 19th of November the Global Entrepreneurship Week (GEW) is organized in Yangon. The Global Entrepreneurship Week is a celebration of entrepreneurship. During this week many events are organised for and by entrepreneurs.
As part of the GEW Impact Terra is organizing a workshop about developing new digital solutions to enhance the agricultural value chain. The workshop is guided by our team.
In small teams we will brainstorm about the question "how can digital technology play a role in enhancing the agricultural value chain?".

After pitching the possible solutions, the ideas are put to a vote. Based on the outcome we will spend time discussing how to put in practice: what are potential ways forward, taking into account the different stakeholders involved?
In a one-hour session we move from vision to action!

This is a free event, we welcome everyone that is interested to join the workshop and look forward welcoming you. 

Please let us know you will be joining us for this free workshop by clicking on the link:
Yes, I will be there

Market Place

Daily market prices for all farmers 

As you may know our Golden Paddy platform is providing market prices from a wide variety of crops and market places. 

Market prices are now uploaded on a daily basis which means we are able to provide farmers with access to market information on a much larger scale. 

The daily market price information gives farmers insights in price trends and helps them to have a better negotiation position.

Interested in how daily market prices can provide insights for your organisation?
