THE NEST AFRICA: AGRITECH
THE PLATFORM THAT CONNECTS AFRICA'S AGRICULTURE SECTOR BUSINESSES WITH BIG CORPORATES, SUPPLIERS, FUNDERS, EXPERTS AND OTHER NETWORKS
The agriculture sector is key to the future of Africa, where the effects of climate change and poor adoption of technology negatively impact the sector.
With some of the largest arable land, the future of Africa’s burgeoning population can secured if African countries adopt the latest technologies and practices that improve yields, reduce post-harvest loss and mitigate the impact of climate change
The Nest Africa AgriTech innovations platform connects African agriculture and agribusiness companies with big corporates, suppliers and other stakeholders and builds their capacity through business incubation, events and training & mentorship. It further provides them with access to financial capital from the community that makes up the Hub to catalyse the sustainable growth of the sector.
The focus areas of this platform include:
Farm and production efficiency and productivity
Soil quality, analysis and testing
Disease detection and management
Food safety & Post-harvest management technologies
- Biotechnology and its applications
- Sustainable agriculture and agribusiness
- Animal nutrition & health
- Agricultural engineering and automation
