The GreenRise Hub is Nigeria’s premier innovation hub specifically focused on empowering agrifood-tech entrepreneurs to build sustainable and profitable business. The innovation hub since established in 2016, has been working with young and talented agrifood-tech entrepreneurs to teach them how to build businesses in the agrifood-tech sector. The GreenRise Hub is also the host of Future Agro Challenge in Nigeria, a competition that provides platform for agripreneurs to gain global recognition and support from the agrifood-tech community for their work.
Over the past years, has support more than 50 entrepreneurs with training, mentoring and financial support. To continue to support agri-foodtech entrepreneurs, we have launched our first virtual accelerator program focused on idea and early stage startups across the country. In this first cohort, 14 amazing teams were admitted into the program.
The teams will be exposed to a 12-week course on different topics that they need to understand the business of agri-foodtech. After the 12-week course, they teams will progress into a one month mentoring program. At the end of the mentoring program, teams will pitch their businesses and the 3 best teams will be selected to received continual support, access to our networks, and office space and opportunity for equity funding.
