AgriTech Challenge

The AgriTech Challenge is an annual competition that identifies young people who are interested in becoming entrepreneurs and provides them with business and leadership training, mentorship, and a network of support. We encourage them through coaching and market research tours across Ghana to take a fresh look at the agriculture value chain to identify new areas of business opportunity. The goal is to show them what’s possible – personally and professionally – if they’re willing to put in the effort.

Business training and mentorship is delivered at key stages in the program and as part of a life-cycle of development and support. Individual competitors join together to establish teams which then participate in a series of pitch and elimination events, during which they present their ideas to a panel of judges. Seed funding is offered to the final high-potential teams who go on to enter a dedicated incubator program. The AgriTech Challenge has identified, nurtured, and funded some of the most promising youth-driven agritech startups in Ghana today.
