Inqola FEED Innovation Prize 2021 Now Open For Entrepreneurs with Internet-Based Solutions

Updated: Oct 9, 2021

About the Opportunity

The Prize was created to highlight ideas and solutions that have the potential to create a meaningful impact on the food system in South Africa. Globally, we are seeing an ever-increasing use of technology to drive change in the food system – innovators are finding new methods of farming, including in the harshest conditions, or in urban environments, finding new pathways for food to reach people, or new ways to decrease or re-utilize waste generated from food. The food system is ripe for innovation, and tech has a critical role to play. FEED and partners believe that a more open and participatory food system is the best path to creating a more equitable one. We advocate for giving people the tools for creating change in their own lives, and our activities in the food system revolve around systemic changes that would enable this shift.
