Between November and January 2017 after recruitment, KIC organised a series of lunch and learn events for all the recruited Agritechies. The first was a 3-day lunch and learn series organised to orient the Agritechies on what to expect from the Kosmos Innovation Center programme by the end of the season in 2017. The Agritechies had a presentation on various ways of using ICT and innovation to drive change in the Agriculture sector. Agritechies were also exposed to technology related opportunities available in the agriculture space. The event was organised at the Holiday Inn, from 28th to 30th November 2016.
Subsequently, another lunch and learn was arranged to enable recruits who could not make it to the November event to get an overview of what Kosmos Innovation Center is about and to know their fellow Agritechies who made it to the earlier lunch and learn series.
A third lunch and learn series was organised to provide Agritechies with research methodology skills before they embark on their market research tour. It was a 2-day training that provided the Agritechies with various skills in data collection methods and analysis.
