AgriTech Movers Ethiopia Forum

Event Overview

Digital technologies bear transformative powers in connecting, scaling and transforming the agriculture sector. The Green Innovation & Agritech Slam 2019 is an agri innovation platform that aims to identify young agri-entrepreneurs, businesses and start-ups in Ethiopia with the highest potential to tackle existing problems in agriculture using digital technologies. The AgriTech Movers Ethiopia Forum is a panel extension of this program. 

The German Federal Ministry of Economic Cooperation and Development (BMZ), through its Green Innovation Centres project, and CTA, in partnership with iceaddis, officially launched the Green Innovation & Agritech Slam 2019 (GIAS) on August 7 at the Hyatt Regency hotel. The GIAS is a nationwide agricultural business competition that aims to find innovative solutions to critical challenges of the agricultural sector.

AgriTech Movers Ethiopia Forum aims to create a stage for agritech startups, primarily based in Ethiopia, to jointly discuss their issues and nurture each other. This forum is about digital startups solidifying their alliance and creating an agritech community to represent their voices together, challenge policy and grow.
