  • May 11 , 2018

Pitch AgriHack is part of the AgriHack Talent initiative of the Technical Centre for Agricultural and Rural Cooperation (CTA) and aims at accelerating e-agriculture entrepreneurship for improved livelihoods in the African, Caribbean and Pacific (ACP) countries. Co-designed with young innovators and partners from ACP countries, it has included:

  • Competitions to develop ICT applications for agriculture (hackathons) when there is a need;
  • A start-up competition (called Pitch AgriHack) targeting young companies already offering e-agriculture services;
  • Capacity building, mentorship and incubation opportunities;
  • Promotional and networking opportunities;
  • Facilitation of access to grants and investments to scale-up services offered.

The ultimate objective is to contribute to the transformation of the agricultural sector and promotion of youth employment. It is expected that eventually, best start-ups involved will offer effective services to hundreds of thousands of farmers and agricultural stakeholders ACP countries. The programme is being implemented in collaboration with key national and international institutions, multinational private sector bodies, investors, incubators.

In order to assist applicants to adequately respond to the application process requirements and have the best opportunity to qualify, INFOCOMM Technologies Ltd and The Community HUB successfully hosted an Application Workshop on May 11th, 2018 at Microsoft Trinidad and Tobago Country Office.  All participants at this session found the information extremely useful.
