"Agripreneurship" is a coined term that has been used quite regularly in recent years, but what does it really mean? In short, it describes the transition from (smallholder) agriculture towards entrepreneurship; there is a shift in mindset from producing just what is enough to meet ends meet, to emphasizing the importance of adding value. In this workshop we will hear from Bernard Foffe, founder of Jangolo, and Diallo Oumou Sissoko, founder of Mamcocktail.

Bertrand decided to move abroad to study ICT in Eindhoven in the Netherlands. After few years
of experience as IT consultant, Bertrand decided to start a project in Cameroon with some
friends with the objective of using technologies to improve small farmers lives in Africa, starting
