UNIDO’s mandate is to mobilize and promote responsible and impact investments and transfer of green technologies from Germany towards developing countries and economies in transition, with a focus on SMEs.

In this context, we conducted an innovation challenge in Lagos to identify promising solutions for the agriculture sector in the region. The 3 winning startups asusu, crop2cash and ruralfarmershub were invited to the Agritechnica, the world’s largest trade fair for agriculture in Germany to showcase their solutions.

We also matched them with corporates from the sector and business angels to grow and scale their businesses. 

Following the challenge, we launched the enable West Africa accelerator to further refine and develop innovative solutions in Ghana and Nigeria.
