Pitch AgriHack! is a new component of the AgriHack Talent program of the Technical Centre for Agricultural and Rural Cooperation ACP-EU (CTA www.cta.int ). It is a bootcamp followed by a pitching competition for existing e-agriculture start-ups, giving them eventually opportunities to consolidate, pilot or upscale their platforms and services. The ultimate objectives are to help develop business services offered by young e-agriculture start-ups as well as to contribute to accelerating the adoption of innovations for stronger productivity by the agrifood sector in African, Caribbean and Pacific (ACP) countries.
It complements the AgriHack Talent program of which objective is to promote ICT innovations and entrepreneurship in agriculture by youth, in view to enabling the transformation of the agri-food sector as well as youth livelihoods in ACP countries. So far, hackathons, incubations and promotional activities have been implemented in four ACP regions: East Africa, where it was piloted in 2013; Caribbean in 2014; South Africa (national edition) in 2015 and West Africa in 2016.
