The Center for Agrofood Entrepreneurship of Messinia (CAEM) is an initiative uniting the American Farm School and the Captain Vassilis Foundation, in an effort to offer practical and technical support to individuals and groups wishing to enhance their skills in the cultivation, processing and distribution of high quality agricultural products. The Center, which was inaugurated on October 10, 2016, is modeled after the American Farm School’s own Center for Agricultural Innovation and Entrepreneurship (CAE).
CAEM has begun offering experiential training programs that aim to assist participants in expanding their technical skill set and working knowledge of selected areas of agrofood production, while promoting an entrepreneurial mindset. The average length of these seminars is 28 hours and they are administered in two consecutive periods: October – January and February – June.
CAEM is also preparing to offer consultancy and mentoring services, eventually expanding its offerings to include all the services currently offered by the Strategic Project Management Office (SPMO) at the American Farm School campus in Thessaloniki.
