We have a particular focus on Value chain businesses that are inclusive by design, Technology businesses that capacitate smallholder and community farmers, and Consumer Packaged Goods with provenance and global appeal.

that Agriculture is the biggest opportunity we have in Africa to enable people to lift themselves out of poverty, create prosperity and build multigenerational wealth.
that smallholder farmers play a critical role towards global food security as they produce up to 80% of all the food consumed in Africa.
that smallholder farmers are stewards of increasingly scarce natural resources and on the frontline of dealing with the impacts of climate change.
that commercial models that are inclusive by design and globally competitive are the best strategy for effecting sustainable development in agriculture.
that an ecosystem approach with deep collaborations and partnerships will yield the necessary transformation across value chains on the continent.
