The AgriPitch Competition includes a three-day boot camp (24th – 26th June) where some pre-selected agripreneurs receive training on business models, marketing, the innovation development process, business financing, etc. by coaches and mentors. The agripreneurs finally pitch their ideas to a panel of judges and impact investors. The event also includes a two-day African Youth Agripreneur Forum Conference (27th – 28th June) which provides a platform for the youth agripreneurs and key stakeholders to discuss topical/thematic issues affecting youth employment with experts, business leaders, investors and policy makers. The event will also include a number of Master Classes to equip the agripreneurs with concrete agribusiness skills.

This is an annual event of the African Development Bank’s Enable Youth Program and is expected to attract over 200 participants from across Africa including youth agripreneurs, agribusiness companies, investors, environmentalists, academia, development partners and government agencies.
