Agripreneurs Accelerator Program
Besides the skills gap, lack of access to finance and credit for small-scale farmers and startups have been identified as a contributor to youth unemployment. In addition, the perceived high risk of the agriculture sector and the unstable employment conditions continue to deter private investment into agriculture.
Business development through accelerators has been shown to address most of the challenges, creating new approaches to creating opportunities and solving the growing unemployment among youth populations (AfDB 2016, FAO 2016 and AU-DREA 2016). Accelerator programs have been shown to have the potential to provide job opportunities for startups, youth and small holder farmers in the world.
The accelerator (face-to-face and virtual) is a one stop service, tailored to suit various needs of clients, that will provide agribusiness entrepreneurs with services and facilities to establish and accelerate new enterprises, test innovations, commercialize scientific knowledge and technologies.
It will also support the aggregations that spurs investment in value chains to:
- support and scale up and growth of SMEs
- improve market systems
- improve efficiencies in business development and financing
- create new employment opportunities for youth and women
- enhance pre-employment skills of graduates
Our Agribusiness Accelerator model is tailored to suit various categories of participants.
