On September 17, the Young Innovators in Agribusiness Competition selected six young innovators to participate in the Africa Green Revolution Forum, to be held in Zambia, September 29 - October 2, 2015. The Forum brings together African Heads of State, Ministers, farmers, private agribusiness firms, financial institutions, NGOs, civil society, scientists, and other stakeholders to discuss and develop concrete investment plans for achieving the green revolution in Africa.
The opportunity to participate in the Forum is part of a larger Young Innovators in Agribusiness Competition that supports participating youth owned start-ups and SMEs to stimulate sustainable enterprises that attract potential investors and stakeholders through competition.
The competition is supported by the USAID East Africa Trade and Investment Hub, Syngenta and the Inter Region Economic Network (IREN). Find out more, here.
