Access Agriculture Young Entrepreneur Challenge Fund

Applications for the Access Agriculture Young Entrepreneur Challenge Fund 2019 are now open.

Through the Young Entrepreneur Challenge Fund, Access Agriculture is requesting young people to propose innovative ideas to make a business, or expand their existing business, around the dissemination of agricultural videos.

Through this competitive grant, the most inspiring and promising young entrepreneurs will receive a Digisoft smart projector.

This projector has an in-built computer and contains the entire Access Agriculture library with over 200 videos in more than 75 international and local languages.

The smart projector comes with a battery and a portable solar panel, so videos can be shown without the internet or electricity.

By building on the ICT skills and networks of young men and women, Access Agriculture believes they can better train farmers and make agriculture more attractive to youth and reach more women.


Access Agriculture will provide winners with a smart projector on loan for 18 months, after which the projector will become yours.

Access Agriculture will cover the shipment cost and customs duty;

Access Agriculture will provide you with advice on the smart projector use and on your business plan.

They will also link you to other young entrepreneurs to allow you to share experiences and strengthen or diversify your business plan.


  • One person or teams of up to 4 young people can submit a proposal;
  • Applicants must be younger than 30 years;
  • Must reside in any country in Latin America, Africa or Asia-Pacific.

    Selection Criteria

  • 5 winners will be selected based on the novelty and strength of their business plan.
