E-Agriculture Pitch – CARI unites local start-ups and the rice sector

In order to find a local Start-up to develop an ICT based solution, CARI hosted a successful E-Agriculture Pitch in Abuja on March 8, 2018. The event was set up in collaboration with the GIZ project “Make IT” and Ventures Platform. Several promising Nigerian start-ups participated. During the event, each start-up had the chance to present their developed prototypes with the aim of improving the supply chain management for one of CARI’s partners.

Both, the partners and CARI have been enthusiastic about the ideas, which were pitched.

In order to gain further background information, the start-ups were given the opportunity to ask the mill representatives questions. Subsequently they were given the opportunity to send in full proposals. After the revision of the proposals, the winner will be selected for piloting the solution in the upcoming wet season 2018 in Nigeria.

CARI is very positive about finding a suitable and sustainable partner. Accordingly, the event was a big success!
