It has been a tough year for most, and millions of vulnerable people on our continent have faced incredible challenges to find enough food to eat. COVID-19 has magnified many of our food system problems exponentially.
Africa needs young, optimistic entrepreneurs who see emerging opportunities when they look deeply at the serious issues facing our food system.
Agri-food entrepreneurs can build a better system.
Our aim is to support these agripreneurs as they grow strong, tech-savvy businesses that create jobs and prosperity for their communities.
