How African entrepreneurs in agro and food create commercial and social impact
On October 27 the 2SCALE consortium organized the conference “Food for thought” Made in Africa, for Africa!” in The Hague, the Netherlands. The event focused on inclusive agribusiness and food security in Africa and highlighted successful African agribusiness.
2SCALE is one of the largest agribusiness incubators in Africa, working in 8 countries with 327,679 smallholder farming families, 1,424 SMEs and with private sector contributions with a value of €21 million. The 2CALE consortium consists of ICRA, IFDC and BoPInc and is supported by the Dutch Ministry of Foreign Affairs.
The inspiring stories and innovative businesses of the seven entrepreneurs that have shared their dreams, ideas, successes and concerns during the conference, have revealed that 2SCALE is a concrete and successful example of the so-called “Dutch Diamond Approach” in which Public-Private Partnerships play a major role in implementing development cooperation policy.
