Agriculture: Ten Togolese entrepreneurs apply for funds to build up their capacities in Cape Coast at the 15th general assembly of RUFORUM

(Togo First) - The 15th general assembly of the Regional Universities Forum for Capacity in Agriculture (RUFORUM) which is scheduled for this year will take place in Cape Coast.

The organization launched a contest to allow young West African entrepreneurs active in the agricultural sector to take part.

Overall, 421 applications were received from 12 West African countries. About 10 of these applications were submitted by young Togolese. This is far behind other countries like Nigeria, Benin or Ghana, which submitted respectively 205, 103 and 52 applications. Still, Togo did better than Sierra Leone and Burkina Faso which submitted respectively nine and eight projects.

The major selection criterion is the innovative nature of the business or business idea submitted. At the end of the process, the 20 most innovative projects will receive funds to build up their capacities. The results will be released on November 15, 2019.
