SIA 2019: African startups in search of trusted partners


The curtains fell on the international exhibition of agriculture (SIA) in Paris on Sunday 3 March 2019. Opened on February 23rd, the SIA has enabled African innovation to look for trusted partners. It is with this in mind that the digital farm, an association that promotes innovation and digital in agriculture, has received, on its stand, ten African startups working for agriculture and food of tomorrow. In clear terms, the digital Africa Association initiated by the French Development Agency (AFD), brought together a dozen innovative African startups during this event while "the values defended by these start-ups are the same".

Invited by digital Africa, they rely on digital to renew the sector, but still have to gain the confidence of the actors of the rural world. AFD launches digital Africa, a platform to support innovation in Africa. More than unlocking funding for young shoots, it's about creating an ecosystem conducive to digital entrepreneurs… A kind of startup incubator.

Africa has a small area of greenery and technology, this week at the Salon international de l'Agriculture in Paris, around digital Africa, an innovative entrepreneurship support Association driven by the French Development Agency. A dozen start-ups active in the African agricultural world have come to present their solutions and seek partners to ultimately gain the confidence of the decision makers and the farmers of the continent.
