What support do young entrepreneurs need to design and adopt technologies for the agrifood industry? The Youth Think Tank, a youth-led research initiative of the Mastercard Foundation and Restless Development, identified challenges facing young people in the agritech sector in 7 African countries. This presentation explores one of the findings - the need for incubation spaces where youth innovators and adopters can share ideas and access information, tools, resources and mentorship.
