PFAN, African Development Bank, PES and EldoHub launch the AgriPitch Competition 2022

PFAN is excited to partner with the African Development Bank (AfDB), Private Equity Support (PES), a women-founded and led enterprise support advisory firm and EldoHub, an education, innovation and technology organization targeting youth and women, to announce the launch of the AgriPitch competition 2022!

The AgriPitch competition aims to support African agripreneurs by improving their business bankability and ensuring they are ‘pitch ready’ for potential investors. The 2022 edition of AgriPitch will help competitors identify innovative solutions and develop ideas that contribute to strengthening Africa’s food systems, mitigating the effects of gender marginalization, and enhancing suitable nutrition across the continent. Held annually, the AgriPitch competition is a key activity of the Bank’s Enable Youth Program and also provides technical capacity-building skills as well as facilitates youth access to financing.

An informational webinar to encourage young African entrepreneurs to enter the competition will take place on 17th October 2022 from 1400hrs EAT. Bank representatives will explain the application process, take questions from prospective applicants and introduce the AgriPitch 2022 competition partners.
