On behalf of the Malawi Government through the Public Private Partnership Commission, Ntha Foundation, in the third phase of the World Bank fully-funded Digital Malawi Project, aims to assist young entrepreneurs by providing Business subgrants to outstanding entrepreneurs who will take part in the digital skills training and the Nyenyezi Fellowship program through the Bants2Business platform.
Bants2Business is a multi-platform forum that aims at connecting young entrepreneurs and businesses growth opportunities, resources and experience mentorship through innovative events and new media.
As we adapt to the agribiz economy, Ntha Foundation wants to add to the adaption of this by having a conversation about redefining and retelling the stories of agriculture in Africa. Consumers want to know more about where their food comes from, we have an exceptional story to tell, and a wonderful opportunity thanks to a curious public. There has never been a better time to engage.
This Bants2Business’ edition will discuss Re-branding Agriculture. The discussion will take place at Thanthwe Farms in Lilongwe on the 16th of December (14:00-17:00 hrs).
