Global AgriFood TechPreneur Programme
Young graduates are encouraged to submit submissions regarding a food system concern in their nation and their proposed solution to overcome it.
The Global AgriFood TechPreneur curriculum is a 12-month company development curriculum focused on food system sustainability.
The Global AgriFood TechPreneur Programme aims to help young graduates address critical food sustainability concerns such as improving food production and distribution, eradicating hunger, obesity, and malnutrition, and reducing food waste.
Through the partnership with Financial Institutions, they will support the AgriFood TechPreneurs to apply for finance to start or scale up their solution by improving their business plan based on the learning from the 6-week interactive course on Entrepreneurship, Tech and Sustainability in the Food System. Where a small scale trial is feasible, they will encourage the AgriFood TechPreneur to explore it as it will boost their business plan.
