The cross-learning from other innovators and networking opportunities has been amazing,’ remarks Peter Okonmah, co-founder of Nigerian smart farming agritech FarmSpeak Technology Limited. This is just one example of the many positive testimonials validating the purpose of the two-day GSMA AgriTech Accelerator Bootcamp held in Kigali, Rwanda, from October 15th to 16th, 2023.

After kicking off implementation of the GSMA Accelerator in June 2023, this Bootcamp enabled the first in-person gathering of representatives from the ten agritech startups, the GSMA AgriTech team, our Accelerator implementation partners (Altai Consulting, Beanstalk, and Bopinc), and our donor GIZ. The Bootcamp served as a valuable platform for our cohort, providing capacity building, promoting cross-learning, and nurturing networking opportunities among the ten agritechs.
