Africa's Start-ups and Entrepreneurs community
Welcome to Africa's Food, Beverage & Milling Industry Innovations Hub
Our Mission is to Revolutionise the Food Industry In Africa
The Nest Africa is sub-Saharan Africa’s only FoodTech community hub that seeks to harness the potential in the Continent’s food industry supply chain to address the region’s most pressing challenges.
Our goal is to create a thriving community of food entrepreneurs across Africa by providing networking, innovation and ideas development platforms to ensure young companies and entrepreneurs can produce more nutritious, affordable and sustainable food solutions; while adopting the latest technologies and practices.
With plans to establish the first Hub in Nairobi, Kenya by 2022, we are aiming at establishing other Hubs across other locations in sub-Saharan Africa in due course, so that our impact can be greater and more localised in the Continent.
The Nest Africa brings together young companies, established food companies, Government agencies, universities and research institutes, suppliers, NGOs, foundations, financial institutions, private equity and venture capital firms, among many other stakeholders – to ensure that the Hub is a community of stakeholders who shall ensure that the food industry of the future will be more sustainable and innovative.
