GoGettaz Agripreneur Prize Competition

GoGettaz 2023 Grand Prize Winners

For the two grand prize winners in the GoGettaz Agripreneur Prize competition, a momentous journey culminated at the AGRF2023 Summit when they received their awards from President of Tanzania, H.E. Samia Suluhu Hassan!

The grand prize winners each receive US$50,000 to scale their businesses and their impact in the Food System.

Hasina Andriatsitohaina - Madagascar

Madagascar is home to a vast array of sought-after therapeutic, medicinal, and aromatic plants. Mad’Arom produces essential oils and aggregates spices for wholesale for local and international markets.

By encouraging diversified agroforestry among their 2000 small-scale growers, Mad’Arom boosts their resilience and helps them achieve a year-round income. This agronomic approach also yields the highest quality produce. Connect with Hasina on LinkedIn to follow their journey.

Ikenna Nzewi - Nigeria

Only a few years ago, Ikenna and his co-founder Uzoma Ayogu, went on a mission to find a problem to solve in Nigeria’s agriculture sector. Today, their solution is making a real impact, and they are ready to scale.

Releaf is lowering food costs through efficiency, which they achieve with both software and hardware solutions. Their multi-pronged approach features geospatial software to find viable farms and a mobile platform to purchase oil-palm fruit from rural small-holders. To process the palm nuts, Releaf constructed the world’s most advanced palm nut de-sheller, named Kraken.

About GoGettaz Africa

GoGettaz is a youth campaign partnership that aims to bring the dynamism of youth entrepreneurship to Africa’s agri-food sector. Initially co-catalyzed by Yara International, the Econet Group and the Alliance for Green Revolution in Africa (AGRA) in 2018 under the Generation Africa umbrella, GoGettaz is now supported by several public and private sector organizations to inspire, drive and scale innovation and job creation in the agri-food sector across the continent.

GoGettaz confluences with the “Youth in Food Systems” thematic platform of the Africa Food Systems (AFS) Forum, the leading annual convening of organizations working to strengthen Africa’s agri-food sector, under the legal auspices of AGRA. The GoGettaz Partnership Charter articulates the purpose and ambition of GoGettaz in detail, including its modalities for governance, resourcing and management of the partnership.

The Community

The GoGettaz Community is an online platform for young, innovative entrepreneurs who are revolutionizing Africa’s agri-food sector. The community, hosted by Venture Capital 4 Africa (vc4a) is open to all value chain players in Africa’s food system; from production to agritech to value addition to market linkages to agrifinance… you name it; GoGettaz got it!

The online community provides support and networks for youth in the agri-food value chain while elevating their voice. Members get to interact with fellow youth agripreneurs, mentors and investors. They also have access to amazing opportunities, news and updates from the ecosystem, online  courses, useful resources, and more!

The Competition

Over the last half-decade, the GoGettaz Agripreneur Prize Competition has established itself as the biggest, annual agripreneurship competition in Africa. Every year, two young African entrepreneurs, one man and one woman, is awarded a game changing US$50,000 each to accelerate their journey to scale.

With top mentors, a network of global industry leaders, and a growing community, the GoGettaz Agripreneur Prize Competition seeks to fast-track the growth of agribusinesses with the potential to ensure food security and provide dignified employment.
