The Technical Centre for Agricultural and Rural Cooperation (CTA) promotes youth entrepreneurship and employment through access to business development services and Information and communication technologies (ICT) solutions. We do this by targeting young entrepreneurs and the institutions that support them to leverage access to finance and markets; showcase best practices and innovative business models; and create pathways to the creation of job opportunities in established agribusinesses.
Building on a strong track record in youth and ICT and a wide network of partners CTA works directly through incubators and established business development service providers, agricultural organisations, NGOs, business associations, agribusiness and ICT firms.
