The Agripreneurship Alliance Annual Report, February 2018

The Agripreneurship Alliance



The Agripreneurship Alliance was founded after two years of research following the Planting Seeds for the Future of Food conference (Switzerland, 2015) at which Dr. Nteranya Sanginga (IITA) introduced their Youth Agripreneur Programme (YAP). The YAP has inspired the development of the concept of ‘Agripreneurship’ which has led to the strategic interest of the African Union and the African Development Bank. The research identified the need to improve business curricula in the context of African agri-food within tertiary level training and university programmes. To meet this need, the Agripreneurship Alliance was launched in August 2017 as a Swiss based non-profit Association. The Alliance is working with a range of partners in the business, academic and non-profit sectors across Europe and Africa to develop culturally appropriate and contextually accurate courses and resources, using cloud-based blended learning approaches, to support the growth of new agri-food businesses led by creative and dynamic young Africans.
