Applications for AgriTech4Egypt Innovation Challenge Now Open


Applications are open for the AgriTech4Egypt Innovation Challenge, which is looking for purpose-driven scientists and entrepreneurs working on agri-tech solutions for a more sustainable, efficient, and climate-resilient agricultural system in Egypt.

The AgriTech4Egypt Innovation Challenge is designed specifically for early-stage agri-tech ventures in Egypt with a minimum viable product (MVP) or proof of concept (POC), and plans to support and prepare them to build a solid go-to-market strategy through technical validation and access to the market.

It is looking for agri-tech innovations in priority areas such as digital agriculture and precision farming, agri-finance solutions, sustainable value chain development, capacity building tools, and efficient irrigation water management.

 

Selected ventures will receive the tools and step-by-step support to build the foundations of an agri-tech venture for scalable growth in Egypt, benefitting from a fully funded, four-day immersive bootcamp, connecting with a network of partners and agribusinesses, accessing expert guidance from CGIAR scientists and industry experts, plus a sponsored six-month acceleration programme.

They will also be able to test and validate their solution on the ground with end-users for up to six months, receive up to EGP300,000 (US$6,500) as an equity-free grant provided by ASRT, and gain exposure to investors and market opportunities.

Applications are open here until April 21, with the accelerator programme taking place between June and October, and a demo day set for November.
