FAC Impact Makers program is a capacity building program and network targeting Sub-Sahara Africa and MENA region to support the development of conducive ecosystems for innovation and entrepreneurship in the agriculture and food sector.
In the MENA region, the program is open to applicants from Algeria, Egypt, Iraq, Jordan, Lebanon, Morocco, Palestinian Territories, Tunisia and Yemen. While in Sub-Sahara Africa, the program is open to applicants from Ivory Coast, Senegal, Uganda, Kenya, and Ghana.
The program’s objective is to empower ecosystem developers, in particular incubators and accelerators that work with start-ups, and strengthen their capacity to advance their advisory services to high-potential, innovative, tech-savvy agricultural entrepreneurs in their regions.
Each Impact Maker will come out of the program with a course certificate that can be used as an endorsement of quality, as well as strategies and initiatives that are tailor made for the AgriFood ecosystems in their regions.
The project is funded by SANAD Technical Assistance Facility, implemented by Industry Disruptors Game Changers, with the support of Berytech, AgriCatalyst Innovations, and FoodMakers Africa.
