Youths are great assets if properly harnessed for development however they can become a source for potential destabilization under conditions of rampant unemployment as we currently have. For many countries, the agriculture sector is a go-to sector for active youth engagement and onward investment, especially with the integration of emerging technologies.

Our event at Social Media Week 2020 is an in-depth discussion/dialogue that is focused on the use of emerging technologies in agriculture and how to foster youth inclusion in Agriculture sector, job creation and increasing rate of youth-led Agribusinesses in Nigeria leveraging AgriTech.

Drawing on the knowledge and experience of industry experts locally and internationally, our event is aimed at exposing participants to the gold mines in the agricultural sector, the career opportunities it offers and business insights that will help build youth-led agribusinesses.

With special focus on Blockchain Commodity Trading, Soilless Farming, Agricultural Marketing, Greenhouse Farming and Farm Management, we aim to provide an in-depth learning experience to enable youths take advantage of the job/entrepreneurial opportunities in the agricultural sector.
