Attendees will hear first hand from global leaders and distinguished personalities including H.E Paul Kagame, Kofi Annan, Al Gore, Aliko Dangote, Carlos Lopes, Tony Blair, Howard Buffett, Strive Masiyiwa, Issad Rebrab and Sunny Verhese.
Our future leaders in agriculture will also have a platform to discuss and plot the way forward. – and there is a dedicated programme that includes the voice of the youth in the agricultural future of Africa.
African entrepreneurs in agribusiness have a chance to secure funding to scale up their business during the Africa Green Revolution Forum (AGRF) due in Kigali.
The forum, slated for September 5-8, in Kigali, will attract entrepreneurs working along the agriculture value chain and they will be given an opportunity to pitch their ideas and stand a chance of securing funding of $100,000-$5 million.
For the first time, the Forum will host a ‘Dealroom’ – an event connecting investors with business owners and projects across the agriculture value chain seeking investments.
AGRF said in a statement that Africa’s future will depend on committed and innovative leadership that is prepared for regular and rigorous measures to drive the growth required for agricultural transformation.
The summit will run under the theme, “Lead. Measure. Grow: Enabling new pathways to turn smallholders into future agribusinesses.”
