Alumni Updates

Igniters more often than not, are able to scale their Agribusinesses right after the programme. Some of them receive funding for their businesses, some gain recognition in the media, others get invitation to speak on high level platforms. We keep staying in touch with them to know how they are doing, monitor their growth and detect any challenges and offer support however we can. It allows us to share news, upcoming events and opportunities for sharing resources.

Here are a few of the recent updates we have from our Igniters.

With the revolution of agriculture in Kenya and across the globe, this farming method comes in at the right time to cater to the needs of the urban dwellers who not only worry about availability but also the high chemical residue on vegetables in the urban markets.
