Disrupt Africa: Ghanaian, Nigerian startups secure $50k funding after Village Capital agriculture accelerator


Disrupt Africa reported in September nine startups from across the continent had been selected for the Agriculture Africa 2019 accelerator cohort. This month, Disrupt Africa covered the peer-selected startups: 

Agriculture Africa 2019 was focused on solutions that improve outcomes for small farmers and address food security issues, and run in partnership with Small Foundation and Ceniarth, the latter of which committed US$50,000 to each of the top two peer-selected ventures. 

The winners, who took home that funding, were Ghana’s Complete Farmer, which has developed an end-to-end digital agricultural platform that helps industries source for quality raw materials for their production, and Nigeria’s ReelFruit, which retails a range of six natural, healthy dried fruit and nut snacks, in over 250 retail supermarkets, airlines, hotels, and schools.
