In case you are an (Dutch, foreign or local) investor you might be interested in establishing or developing your sourcing of raw material or in establishing local production for the local-, regional- or world market.
In case you are an exporter seeking for new opportunities to export your products, you might be interested in finding trade contacts, ways to promote and position your products in new markets or to support your potential client with feasibility studies, technical plans or acquiring financing. As a manufacturer of high quality inputs or advanced technology, you might want to establish a local production- or assembly facility.
Our financing services
Investing in developing countries and emerging markets has without doubt a high-risk profile. For the investor it is important to minimize the risk and not to endanger the existing business. Commercial financing for investments in developing countries and emerging markets is however difficult to acquire. If available, often the conditions are not suitable and favourable.
Based on our first meeting we advise you what the best opportunity is for your company to acquire financing or subsidies. We support you in developing the business case and formulate a bankable business plan suitable for acquiring financing or subsidies.
We have extensive experience and a strong track record in acquisition of grants (subsidies) from Dutch and international programmes supporting investments and export promotion. In the event that your business case is not eligible for receiving a grant, we support in the acquisition of financing such as loans and semi equity from development banks and commercial banks or private equity from strategic investors or venture capital funds.
Financing services are generally based on a combination of a fixed fee and a success fee.
Our advisory services
Being specialized and having an extensive experience in agriculture and food chains in developing countries and emerging markets, Agriment International is well aware of the opportunities and challenges in establishing sustainable and viable agri- and food operations and cooperation in food chains.
Our focus is to advise and support you in developing these plans and, linked to the plans, to develop a financing scheme that is in balance with your own means. Our advisory services include among others: market studies, strategy development & matchmaking, project development, feasibility- and pre-investment study, development of a (bankable) business plan, institutional development and acquisition of grants and financing.
Are you already active in the agri- and food business and you are motivated to improve the performance of your business, our team of experts can support you in carrying out a business performance scan (BPS). Based on this we can indicate the financial impact of possible improvements of your operations. A further analysis leads to the development of an “Improvement plan”. We can provide you with technical assistance and (interim-) management support to implement the proposed improvements.
Based on your requirements we can draft a project proposal including a detailed and specified financial offer for our services. Based on this we agree upon a tailor-made fee for our advisory services, often related to results that have to be achieved. In this way our client knows up front what he can expect and how the costs are related to the financial revenues.
