Agro-technology Africa
Agriculture is an integral part of many African economies. About 60% of the population in sub-Saharan Africa are small-scale farmers, and agriculture accounts for 23% of their GDP. Despite its importance, agriculture continues to lag behind in terms of productivity on the continent.
Kenya and Nigeria account for up to 96.8% of investment in agro-technology, while Twiga Foods of Kenya and Agricorp of Nigeria accounted for 71% of total investment in 2021.

The agri-tech ecosystem journey is a marathon, not a sprint. Many segments of the agricultural sector still need technology, so there is plenty of room for new players.

The African continent currently has 60% of the world's uncultivated arable land, which represents great investment potential. These figures, combined with the continent's ever-growing population, show that the agro-technological space in Africa is still a particularly unexplored gold mine, its potential almost limitless.
