Wennovation hub and First City Monument Bank (FCMB) have announced an Agrictech incubation programme.
Agritech 2019 is looking to inspire and empower the next generation of Agri-Tech startups addressing the most crucial challenges in the Agricultural sector.
Recent findings show that crop yield in Africa may fall by 10-20% by 2050 or even up to 50% due to climate change particularly because it is predominantly rain-fed & highly dependent on the vagaries of weather.
In fact, #Nigeria has over 60% of its population engaged in agriculture, but still finds her food requirement produced by small scale farmers who constitutes the majority of the nation’s poor.
Consequently, Agrictech 2019 is set out to guide early stage entrepreneurs to test and validate their ideas as well as gather their first set of customers or pivot if need be.
This will be done through a combination of financial support, guidance, and training.
