He or she may currently be in a full- or part-time job in the Government or private company in any industry, may be running an enterprise on his/ her own or in partnership with others, and may be founders of established companies that are in the pre-funding stage. He or she must be motivated to do the work required to build a company in the rapidly growing food processing industry.
