Pitch AgriHack’s objective is to help develop business services offered by young e-agriculture start-ups as well as contribute to the acceleration of the adoption of innovations for stronger productivity in the agri-food sector. The winners of the first edition, targeting African, Caribbean and Pacific countries, are now improving and scaling up their services (advisory information services in Botswana, e-commerce for women cooperatives in Senegal, livestock traceability in Senegal, and better market linkages for farmers in Uganda and Ghana, etc.).
