It was great to speak at the 'Youth, Agripreneurship and SDG's" workshop in Stockholm yesterday. There was lots of enthusiasm and energy from all the participants and a huge 'thanks' must go to SLU Global & SIANI for organising the event and to SIDA for hosting the workshop.

This is awesome, I've been invited to participate at the GoodFestival.ch event on 20 - 22 April 2017 at the Olympic Museum in Lausanne. As they say on their website "GoodFestival is for the sustainable innovators. The Artists, Entrepreneurs, Scientists, Writers, Doctors, Filmmakers and other practitioners, the “doers” who are building a better world. It does not matter whether the business model is for-profit or non-profit; whether the Innovator is established or a start-up; or she/he is an artist or a business person or both. The only thing that matters is that the initiative is contributing to a better world. And the aim of GoodFestival is to connect the Innovators to Fans, Funds & Fame.". This will be a great opportunity to build networks and share the ambitions of the Agripreneurship Alliance.Read More
Delighted that we've been invited to put up a display at the 'Planting Seeds for Future Food II, the Agriculture, Nutrition and Sustainability Nexus' in Vevey, Switzerland in July 2017. It will be a lot of work to pull together, but I hope that with the help of friends and colleagues we can really show what the Alliance hopes to achieve.
I think that we have secured office space in the amazing town of Montreux (think Montreux Jazz Festival)! We still have the paperwork to complete so I cannot make a formal announcement yet, but I will share with you that we hope to take a small office within a building at a community arts association from 1 June 2017.Read More
Here I am, sat at a table, working on the first website for the Agripreneurship Alliance. This is the first iteration and will give the project more visibility. The aim will be to build upon this experience to create a great tool focused on the needs of young agripreneurs in Africa. Please be patient as it will take some time to fully meet our vision and I hope that there will be contributions from our partners including links to resources that they would like to highlight and new tools that we develop in partnership.
