AL for Agribusiness is a network that supports and develops young leaders who will contribute to the transformation of the agriculture sector across Africa. We will catalyse connections between key stakeholders along the agriculture value chain to create an ecosystem that facilitates diverse career pathways for our young leaders. We will also support aspiring agripreneurs in their efforts to build innovative ventures that will drive productivity and job creation in their communities. The network will foster powerful and sustainable intergenerational relationships that will enable the exchange of information and know how to positively impact rural livelihoods.
How will we achieve this?
AL for Agribusiness provides an inclusive space for young leaders to engage with each other in the transforming landscape of African agriculture. The network will also enable engagement between our young leaders and other agriculture stakeholders to facilitate knowledge exchange and idea generation that will promote innovation in the sector. The engagement platforms will include a monthly newsletter, webinars, communities of practice calls and an annual gathering.
AL for Agribusiness will connect our young leaders to job and internship opportunities along the agriculture value chain on the continent. We will also equip our young leaders with the skills, knowledge and attributes needed to catalyse their careers in the sector by facilitating masterclasses and providing one-on-one coaching and career guidance.
AL for Agribusiness believes that agripreneurship lies at the heart of the agricultural revolution on the continent. We will identify, connect and support young agripreneurs to establish sustainable ventures. In addition, we will partner with established high impact organisations to help develop and promote the work of our entrepreneurs.
