FoodtechAfrica accelerator is backed by GIZ Make-IT, an accelerator and investment platform from Norway. Kenyan youth and women-led businesses are eligible for $100,000 in investment to their companies through the programme.
GIZ Make-IT operates in East Africa, matching budding African startups to investors, foundations, and development agencies on a global scale. A recent report by Kenya Food Security 2019 Steering Group shows 1.3 million people facing a food insecurity crisis which worsened due to the pandemic.
Jonas Tesfu, the co-founder of Pangea Accelerator expressed gratitude to GIZ Make-IT in Africa for selecting Pangea and Strathmore University in their drive to, “food security in Africa through the FoodTech Africa program.”
In a recent webinar, agripreneurs outlined their interests and revealed the support provided by the sector in support of agri-based enterprises. Businesses selected are banking on 10-week intensive training aimed at business coaching and mentorship. The package includes B2B sales opportunities and a chance to interact with high net worth companies investing up to $100,000.
