Social Good Summit Geneva 2018


Social Good Summit Geneva 2018

Aperçu de l'événement

The Social Good Summit Geneva is an initiative of the United Nations Development Program (UNDP) Geneva office that brings together high-level decision makers to forge partnerships for the implementation of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).

CTA organises an AgriTech and Food safety session during the summit.

An invitation-only event, the Social Good Summit Geneva offers unique and valuable networking opportunities. 250 participants are due to attend, including innovative start-ups, impact investors, development finance actors, Fortune 500 representatives, development agencies, and more. 

20 developing country entrepreneurs, sourced through well-known and established global accelerators, pitch their products and services in sectors such as access to health and education, financial inclusion, food production, climate change, and agritech. 

CTA sponsors once again four e-agricultural start-ups to take part to the summit. These four entrepreneurs are involved in the Pitch AgriHack initiative, which aims to accelerate youth e-agriculture entrepreneurship for growth and job creation. Three of them are winners of Pitch AgriHack 2018 ( CowTribe Africa, Illuminum Greenhouses Kenya and Fenou packaging), the last one is a previous participant (Save our Agriculture). These start-ups have the opportunity to pitch their business solutions, create partnerships and business opportunities.
