The Farm Graduates of State Agricultural Universities of India are mostly risk averters. It is mainly due to the lack of confidence and lack of money for investment into the agribusiness enterprises. Besides, they are also lacking awareness on how to establish the agribusiness institutions so as to gain higher profit. In this circumstance, most of the farm graduates are hailing in the subordinate services and becomes satisfied with what is available as income in a month. Very few are risk takers and got involved in establishing such wonderful agribusiness ventures and find the ways and means of earning profit by eliminating the stiff competition in the global environment. This article aims to infuse the confidence building exercise to the farm and other graduates who are partially having an idea of establishing the business ventures. The success story of Match Splints Industry located in Western Part of Tamil Nadu and its performance is highlighted in this article for the emerging entrepreneurs in agribusiness enterprises for infusing confidence.
