Future of Agtech in Africa
Word count: 750
In July 2018, I published an article entitled, “Now might be the time to invest in African agtech”. It’s a good feeling to see my own optimism reflected in the market. At the time of writing, there was a surge in agtech (agriculture technology) ventures in Africa, which still tallied at a humble 82 start-ups. Funding in agtech had also increased 121% in the period between 2016 and 2017 (these figures were taken from a 2018 Disrupt Africa Report).
