This year AYAF will be presented as a Webinar Series where agripreneurs will get to exchange with key stakeholders – policy makers, investors, business leaders, etc. – on overcoming the challenges to youth entrepreneurship in agriculture and the opportunities to best integrate better gender inclusiveness and nutrition solutions into their agribusinesses to eradicate poverty and unemployment, positioning Africa as a model for other continents.
