Having realised that young women in Agribusiness find it difficult to scale due to factors like inadequate technical know-how, market access limitation and a lack of mentorship, we started Ignite, an Agri-business accelerator model for African young women in Agribusiness.

DONATE THROUGH OUR GOFUNDME CAMPAIGN
Coronavirus Pandemic has hit most of our sponsors badly. As such they are unable to fund this year’s Ignite programme.
We are raising GBP 9,000 in the next three months to support one hundred (100) young women Agribusiness founders (our target group) who are being faced with financial and personal challenges due to the pandemic and are seeking for tools and resources to help them deal with the uncertainty.
We want to make this whole experience easier and make Ignite 2020 free for every woman in Agribusiness who needs it.
This will enable many young women in agribusiness on the African continent to build their own capacities, receive toolkits, relevant resources and a community of like-minded peers. In effect, they will be able to build disruptive agribusinesses that can withstand uncertainties and in effect be able to produce food for the world’s population.
Supporting 100 Women in Agribusiness in Africa
Being part of the IGNITE 2019 programme is an experience that will remain with me for a lifetime.
We had first class facilities who challenged us, taught and equipped us, and above all, encouraged us. I also gained great friendships and sisters.
I would definitely recommend ignite programme to start-up agripreneur.
After ignite my business has been elevated to another level. I have managed to incorporate systems that have lead to the steady expansion of the business.
