Food Insecurity is a Global Threat and Graduate Unemployment is a national security threat.
Guzakuza incubates ground breaking ideas and accelerates game-changing Agribusiness start-ups, that improve food security,create jobs and wealth.
We know with one single sector called Agriculture, six of the Sustainable Development Goals will come to fruition.
We ask ourselves thought provoking questions -
“How are we going to feed the world's population on track to 9 billion in 2050 if we all stay in the offices in suits and ties?"
“Why should a graduate with all the diplomas and degrees she has earned, chase non-existing white collar jobs whereas the list of employment opportunities in Agriculture sector is endless?"
Why should a continent with rich fertile soil and favourable weather conditions still import daily Agricultural Consumables?
We use Agriculture and entrepreneurship to create mindset change in the society.
We highlight the fact that this sector is not only about tilling the soil,but it includes all the processes from the farm to the table (growing,processing,technology,packaging,branding,marketing,transportation,distribution etc)
We believe that the farmer is as equally important as the lawyer and the doctor.
