Identification

The NEXUS Concept is a business model to sustainably provide rural fisher and farming communities with access to infrastructure and know-how.

NEXUS is a packaged business model. Instead of focusing on singular solutions, it offers a holistic alternative to develop smallholder farmers and fishermen communities. Infrastructures and modern technology to rural areas and operates it together with communities. Means for purpose are the so-called NEXUS Centers where the previously lacking infrastructure and services for fishermen, farmers and the communities are provided (safe drinking water, clean energy, cooling solutions for fish, storage facilities etc.). Each center is managed by a local operator. The infrastructure and know-how transfer shall be designed to support the farmers or fishermen to produce a more valuable, more sustainable and more diversified product in an efficient manner. On-the-job training and capacity building for local producers are part of the concept. Within the business model, various technologies can be promoted and deployed. NEXUS therefore also acts as an incubator of suitable solutions and innovations for tech companies and service providers.
