The RUFORUM Entrepreneurship Challenge Program

RUFORUM Entrepreneurship Challenge Program (RECAP)

Call for Establishment of Agribusiness Incubation Hubs,

October, 2017

The Regional Universities Forum for Capacity Building in Agriculture (RUFORUM) in partnership with The MasterCard Foundation is implementing an eight year programme “Transforming African Agricultural Universities to meaningfully contribute to Africa’s growth and development (TAGDev)”. The TAGDev Programme seeks to transform African agricultural universities and their graduates to better respond to developmental challenges through enhanced application of science, technology, business and innovation for rural agricultural transformation. Under the TAGDev, a focus towards developing a critical mass of young business leaders by providing a supporting environment where startups, innovations and disruptive ideas from universities are fast tracked to service communities and nurture enterprises driven and led by youth in Africa has been envisioned. This will be delivered through the RUFORUM Agricultural Enterprises Challenge Program (RECAP).   

The RECAP is therefore designed to strengthen university entrepreneurship education and impact by supporting the development/ strengthening of Agri-Enterprise Innovation Hubs (AIHs) at universities that will support the development of agricultural enterprises through entrepreneurial skills development. The RECAP Call for Proposals is described in this document with deadline date for receipt of all Proposals by 5pm on 30th November 2017.  A transparent, competitive process is proposed to select four university based projects with maximum grants of up to $50,000 each to establish/strengthen AIH and implement support to agribusiness development in Africa.
