Women Innovators Group Growing in Kenya

When Teresa, Louise, Marion, and Faith met at the AgAccelerator Lab, they came up with an idea: a professional group for women innovators in Kenya. 


What started in June as a group of four women entrepreneurs has become a growing association working to become incorporated as a self-help group in Kenya. The group plans to have a membership that encompasses a broad range of skills and that can support not only each other, but also other women innovators in Kenya. 


You can read all about it from the group's founders and get in touch with the group here!

Surehatch and MKA Hatchery Bring Fresh Opportunities to Ag Innovation Showcase

Partnering for Innovation partners Surehatch and MKA Hatchery pitched to an audience of 85 potential investors at the Ag Innovation Showcase in St. Louis in September, bringing the message of profitably engaging smallholder farmers to a new audience.


Surehatch, a South Africa-based egg incubator manufacturer, and MKA Hatchery, a Bangladeshi shrimp hatchery, were selected by Partnering for Innovation during the AgAccelerator Lab earlier this year to travel to the United States for the event, one of the premier events for food and agriculture investors. This was the first time the event featured companies from developing countries, bringing a fresh perspective on the agricultural sector to an audience usually focused on more traditional developed markets.


Read a first-hand account of the event from Surehatch's managing director, Heinrich Hanekom, here!
