The second iteration of O-Farms, a Kenyan agri-circularity accelerator, has chosen ten entrepreneurs and will provide up to $24,000 in milestone-based funding to two peer-selected businesses.

Africa’s first agri-circularity-focused accelerator program, O-Farms, was launched in 2021 and is run by E4Impact Accelerator under the direction of Bopinc and Village Capital. Its goal is to make circularity a mainstream technique for improving sustainability and rural livelihoods.

We at E4 Impact want to help SMEs develop better products, strengthen their business plans, get access to capital, and build a foundational network that will advocate for better adoption of a circular economy as well as advantageous legislation and regulations. According to David Cheboryot, director of the E4Impact Entrepreneurship Centers, “we are anticipating the arrival of the second cohort of agri-circularity SMEs as we endeavor to firmly establish Kenya as an agricultural powerhouse in Africa.”

The firms that were chosen represent significant agri-circularity industry subsectors, such as biofuels, biodegradable packaging, animal feeds, fertilizer, and human food.

The chosen startups are listed below:

Solutions for the agribusiness.
