Vijana na AgriBiz Competition is an annual contest that targets youth with innovative ideas in agribusiness and who are willing to show them to the world as well as to actualise them from ideation to commercialization. The Competition addresses key challenges that hinder youth from tapping into the immense potential in the agricultural sector. The competition equally supports the full spectrum of the value chain from agricultural inputs and producers, to suppliers for end consumers in conventional agriculture, fisheries and livestock. It is part of the AgriBiz programme funded by the European Union and Danida.
