  9. 9. Target MarketThere are three major layers of users that could be targetedfor utilizing our product:1. The Agricultural Community of the farmers which constitute around 58.4 % (approx) of the Indian Population. – We aim to market the product initially in Southern India, Regions of Deccan, Gujarat, Maharashtra and Punjab.2. The Agro-based Firms and vendors involved in selling of products like fertilizers, pesticides, crop seeds, etc. as well as those involved in purchasing of the crop products.3. Organizations like Dairy Boards, FICCI, CCI, NGOs, Agricultural Universities etc.

Computer & internet facilities easily available in villages of Gujarat & Maharashtra.• The farmers will be enrolled through active help of the Gram Panchayats of the respective villages.• Agro-based Firms would receive better quality crops for their product development.
  11. 11. Competitive Landscape• E-Choupal by ITC – Service provided via Internet koisks and not mobiles, which is a hindrance to growth. – Service provided for select crops in select regions which are beneficial to ITC for its agro-based products. (e.g. soyabean, wheat, tobacco) – Part of supply chain for ITC. Crop produced is purchased by ITC itself.• Thomson Reuters has been updating over 1 lakh farmers in the country with the latest market trends, weather forecast, and crop information via its SMS-based service. – Costly to the range of Rs 60 per month – No social networking initiatives and no interactive mechanism• Nokia launched its Life Tools service in June, after a pilot project in the Indian state of Maharashtra. The service offers agriculture information, education, and entertainment targeted at people in rural areas.
  12. 12. Growth Opportunities• Product Expansion – Reach out to other subsidiary fields like poultry farming, honey industry, silk industry etc. – Implementation in the Fish Industry.• Market Expansion – Currently aimed exclusively towards India, due to its huge untapped market potential. – Market expansion would be carried out after 5 years aiming different countries which have a huge chunk of revenue generated from such sectors. – Agro-social Networking in true sense.• New Avenues – AgroClinics and AgroBanks Development.

  19. 19. Long-Term Financial Strategies• Venture Capital & Angel Investment – We seek to partner with venture capital industry leaders that would provide both financial assistance as well as industry, legal, technological and marketing insights.• Brand Partnerships – Partnerships with traditional brands seeking to purchase high-quality agricultural products for their own product lines are being looked into.• Government Loans – Government of India is very keen to develop the agricultural sector with the help of IT ventures and it can be approached for loan on successful achievement of targets• IPO – An IPO would clearly benefit the company by allowing us to leverage the additional resources and market valuation to purchase additional information, and increase company credibility.• Franchising – Expansion in the fields of development of AgroBanks and AgroClinics could be facilitated by franchising them.
  20. 20. Risks• Financial Risks – Seasonal patterns of spending by advertisers and sponsors and trends in advertising rates. – Fluctuations in expected revenues from our strategic relationships.• Content Delivery Risks – Experience temporary system interruptions due to power and telecommunications failures – Vulnerability to breaches in our security and natural disasters. – Outsourcing the server hosting function to a third party may leave some systems interruptions outside of our control.• Other Risks – Privacy Issues – Minor Risks of penetration of product due to political problems, as well as hindrance in the implementation due to opposition from various other forces and the orthodox mindset of the farmers.
  21. 21. Potential Exit Scenarios• Initial Public Offering: We seek to go public within 5 years of operations. The funds used will both help create liquidity for investors as well as allow for additional capital to develop our international strategy.• Acquisition Merger with Private or Public Company: There are several key companies like ITC, Du Pont etc. which are based on Agricultural products. Many have worked on alternative solutions but lack the special features we have.• Government Collaboration: Indian Government is constantly working out schemes for the betterment of agriculture in the country. It tends to utilize the IT Bubble to maximize the revenue generated from the agriculture sector.
