A Swiss-based foundation, Global Alliance for Improved Nutrition, (GAIN) in partnership with Aiivon Innovation Hub, Makurdi, has launched an agribusiness innovative challenge to support women and youths to develop their businesses in Benue State.
Chief Executive Officer of Aiivon Innovation Hub, Attah Samson Igoche, at the project launch in Makurdi over the weekend, disclosed that the idea would leverage technology to develop businesses and provide technical assistance training to women and youths with start-up businesses to strengthen their capacity and improve access to finance for supply chain efficiency.

He said the challenge would culminate in an award day where finalists would battle for N5 million in zero-equity prize money while there would be only one first prize winner with other finalists getting to pitch at a room full of international investors.
Igoche, therefore, called on women and youth-led agri-tech start-ups with supply chain targeted innovations to apply for the first edition of the challenge, noting that, “anyone with a business within the agricultural value chain that aids nutrition can apply.”
