Orange Corners at SARA 2023

Earlier this month, 27 Orange Corners agripreneurs from Senegal, Morocco, Ghana and Côte d’Ivoire took Abidjan by storm. Young, talented and very, very ambitious: they came to SARA 2023 to do business!

Our 27 entrepreneurs had a full programme, filled with elements such as an ecosystem tour, B2B matchmaking, workshops, selling their products at the stand and networking. But the highlight of the week was surely the Q&A session with NL Ambassador for Youth Jurriaan Middelhoff and ex-football star Bonaventure Kalou (Feyenoord, Auxerre, PSG, Heerenveen), where Orange Corners entrepreneurs and hackathon participants questioned the pair on youth in agriculture.

Business 24 Africa reported on this special startup mission:
