The Global Agrifood Techpreneur Programme 2023 is now accepting applications (Program for Global Agrifood Entrepreneurs 2023). The goal of the global agrifood techpreneur is to assist recent graduates in taking on their nation’s most pressing food sustainability concerns in order to increase food production and distribution, combat obesity and malnutrition, end hunger, and prevent food waste. The empowerment of local food distribution and production is their top priority.
The Deadline: 20th of February 2023
What it Does
Young graduates are requested to submit applications each year outlining a problem with the food system in their nation and a plan for solving it.
The AgriFood TechPreneur initiative will promote all suitably qualified proposals in March in conjunction with World Engineering Day for Sustainable Development. Starting in April and sponsored by RBS through the Business Builder platform, all qualified AgriFood TechPreneurs will be enrolled in a 6-week interactive course on entrepreneurship, technology, and sustainability in the food system.
They are also collaborating with top business institutions across the world to make sure that the case studies for the courses are extremely insightful and influential. For a whole year, all AgriFood TechPreneurs will have free access to the World Food Tracker to help them plan their farm setup and market their produce.
They are happy to offer this fantastic support to the AgriFood TechPreneurs while also benefiting them by helping them find sustainable farm equipment, nutrients, seeds, fry/fingerlings, chicks, and piglets, among other things.
According on the knowledge they have gained over the six-week interactive course on entrepreneurship, technology, and sustainability in the food system, the AgriFood TechPreneurs will, where appropriate, modify their plans. The expert panel will get the modified proposal for review and a recommendation to support it.
The quality of the AgriFood TechPreneurs’ proposals, their attendance at the six-week interactive course on entrepreneurship, technology, and sustainability in the food system, and the help that their partners can offer them will all be factors in the support that is made available to them. The announcement of these funds will coincide with World Sustainable Gastronomy Day in June, giving the AgriFood TechPreneurs extra exposure.
Through their collaboration with financial institutions, they will assist agri-food techpreneurs in improving their business plans in order to submit funding applications for the launch or expansion of their solutions. This will be done in light of the knowledge gained from the six-week interactive course on entrepreneurship, technology, and sustainability in the food system. They will advise the AgriFood TechPreneur to consider doing a small-scale trial where it is possible because it will strengthen their business plan.
- Young graduates and agrifood entrepreneurs are welcome;
- Be from anywhere in the world; exhibit enthusiasm for tackling significant issues with food sustainability in their nation.
The deadline for applications is February 20, 2023 at 11:59 p.m., GMT+1. Starting at the beginning of April, the training cycle lasts for six weeks.
