As entrepreneurs, young people can play a major role in the transformation of agriculture. In developing countries, too few of them currently get the chance. But numerous governments are now creating entrepreneurial agribusiness opportunities through new programs and policies.

The private sector, investors and non-profit organizations are also closely involved. Big questions remain to be answered, however. How can the necessary business environment best be strengthened? How can multi-stakeholder initiatives most benefit young people?What is required for sustainable success?

This webinar will look at key issues. We’ll be pointing to opportunities, but also examining the constraints and challenges to agri-enterprises in developing countries. Presenters will highlight key drivers and discuss how governments, non-profits and companies can best strengthen youth entrepreneurship in the agricultural value chain.
