Incubating business solutions to reduce Post Harvest Losses in Nigeria
Two editions of the Food Connection Challenge (FCC) took place in 2018, one in Benin and one in Nigeria. These two FCCs provided local (agri) entrepreneurs the opportunity to develop innovative solutions to Post Harvest Losses (PHL). The challenge took the shape of a funnelled incubation process, consisting of training and coaching, with this process being organized, supported and encouraged by Crosswise Works (Nigeria) and BoP Innovation (Benin). During the incubation, solutions to decrease PHL were developed from an early idea to a business case ready to be implemented. The winners of the FCCs have implemented their solutions in 2019.
