Katapult Africa Accelerator Program

The world’s increasing population means there is an increasing demand for food, along with an increasing environmental footprint from agriculture. New technologies in food production have the potential to revolutionize the way we produce and distribute food, as well as manage our food waste. Innovative startups from Africa are encouraged to take the leap and create solutions for the future. Katapult’s Africa Accelerator Program will recruit the best companies and provide them the tools, network and the financial support (a 150,000 USD investment) for success. Together with our partners, Katapult aims to contribute to a transformative, structural change in the food chain.
