agriculture will compete for the Agripreneur of the Year title at the third Future

from more than 60 countries over five continents to identify ground-breaking agro
initiatives addressing national, regional, and global challenges across the food
supply chain.

current and future challenges. We2
“Innovators, who have submitted high-calibre applications to the FAC, are positioned
to help us address those challenges. Agripreneurs must be on the frontline and the
FAC ecosystem, including all our national stakeholders are committed to help them
succeed.”
This year, Future Agro Challenge is partnering with Securing Water for Food: A Grand
Challenge for Development for the Global Agripreneurs Summit 2017, a four-day event
that connects innovators with investors and key stakeholders in the food and
agribusiness sector.
It will be held on March 12-15 in Johannesburg.
