AgriTech4Morocco Innovation Challenge Winners
- Impact Area
Back in March 2022, the CGIAR Accelerate for Impact Platform, the World Bank, IMPACT Lab, and partners launched the AgriTech4Morocco Innovation Challenge to scout and support agri-tech solutions that could improve the efficiency, equity, and environmental sustainability for the agriculture sector of Morocco while driving forward the goals of Generation Green Strategy 2020-2030. The Challenge targeted innovations that showed a proof-of-concept or minimum viable product that could be made available to farmers, consumers, and users. The idea resonated worldwide, attracting 350+ submissions from 31 countries across Asia, Africa, the Middle East, the Americas, and Europe. The wide participation proves that there are talented entrepreneurs poised to contribute towards making agriculture more sustainable and regenerative with creative products, services, and technologies.
The AgriTech4Morocco Innovation Challenge came to a close on Thursday, 28 July with the Demo Day and announcement of the three winners. The top three teams will benefit from post-acceleration support from the A4IP and IMPACT Lab who will proactively follow up with connections made with scientists as well as agri-food companies and other financial partners to help accelerate their growth.
