Youth-led African agri-food businesses have been invited to apply for the fifth annual US$100,000 GoGettaz Agripreneur Prize Competition.
The GoGettaz Agripreneur Prize Competition has established itself as the biggest, annual agripreneurship competition in Africa, identifying and supporting innovative, high-potential agribusinesses.
The competition will culminate in a final pitch contest live on stage at the AGRF Summit, to be held in Dar es Salaam, Tanzania, in September. Two young African entrepreneurs, one man and one woman, will be awarded US$50,000 each to accelerate their journey to scale.
“Agripreneurship is the biggest, most important opportunity in Africa. Especially with the power of emerging technologies in the sector, we want African youth to grab this opportunity with both hands,” said Dickson Naftali, head of Generation Africa, the competition’s organisers. “A strong, African-led agrifood sector is our best hope for a prosperous continent without hunger and malnutrition; but we must develop our agrifood sector better, more sustainably, and more responsibly.”
Applications are open here until June 19.
