Ventures Africa’s special feature on Heifer International: Reimagining the future of African agriculture

In collaboration with Heifer International, Ventures Africa, an online platform that produces stories about an evolving Africa, has released a mini edition titled Heifer International: Reimagining the future of African agriculture. This mini edition covers Heifer International’s commitment to agriculture on the continent through its AYuTe Africa Challenge. 

The AYuTe Africa initiative offers something new for African agriculture. It combines features of prize competitions and business development initiatives to translate the energy and ideas of young African innovators into meaningful impact for African farmers.

This year, Nnaemeka Ikegwuonu, founder and CEO of ColdHubs, a Nigerian business that provides solar-powered, walk-in coolers for smallholder vegetable farmers and Jehiel Oliver, founder and CEO of Hello Tractor, a Kenyan company known across Africa as the “Uber of tractors,” won the inaugural US$1.5 million Heifer International AYuTe Africa Challenge.

This mini edition also sets the scene for the third edition of Ventures Africa multimedia business series – VA BizHive, which explores innovations, emerging markets and business trends in Africa. The forthcoming VA BizHive 3.0 titled “Leading Innovators Redefining Agriculture in Africa“, explores creative professionals using technology to reimagine farming and food production across the continent.
“Across Africa today, young, creative professionals are deploying tech innovations that are reimagining farming and food production,” said Adesuwa Ifedi, senior vice president of Africa Programs at Heifer International. “We want to do our part to help agritech innovators as they provide Africa’s smallholder farmers with much-needed products and services to develop a sustainable, profitable business.”
