Generation Africa is a pan-African youth initiative founded in 2019 to support young agripreneurs transforming Africa’s food system in scaling their enterprises. One of its key interventions is the annual GoGettaz Agripreneur Prize competition. This awards $ 50,000 each to two top agripreneurs (1 male and 1 female) who emerge successful after a vigorous selection process and pitch of their agribusinesses to an expert panel of judges. The competition attracts more than 1,000 applications from young agripreneurs across Africa.
Since inception of the Competition, 8 agripreneurs from different African countries have received the grand prize award. They have also benefited from a pool of opportunities, including mentorship, linkages with key stakeholders, scholarships, and the Generation Africa Fellowship Program. Four additional agripreneurs stand a chance to win $ 2,500 each for the most innovative solutions contributing to environmental conservation and community empowerment.
