Agripreneurs – Youth Entrepreneurship in Agribusiness

We utilize our network of professional diaspora mentors to provide skills and critical-thinking workshops to show youth opportunities in the agribusiness supply chains. There are many parts of the supply chain for youth to scale and grow a business.

STEM – (Science Technology Engineering Math) Engagement in Agriculture

We use STEM to get youth at a young age interested in agriculture. It’s important to connect and build a relationship for youth at a young age. We want youth to develop engineering innovations to make agriculture more efficient. Whether it’s coming up with a product design for tropically-tolerant packaging for the tropics or using design thinking in agriculture to come up with efficiencies; we want to inspire the next generation of youth in agriculture.

Agriculture Challenges – Challenging Youth to Develop Tropically-Tolerant Technologies 

Africa has diverse climates, soils and landscapes; we need appropriate tropically-tolerant technologies to combat climate change, but to make agriculture more efficient. We expect the next generation of youth to develop climate-smart technologies and agriculture innovations to develop better yields and make agriculture more efficient.
