Making Farming Cool! Podcast: AGCO Trains Next Generation Managers in Agribusiness

Categories: Featured , Member News

In the final installment of our “Making Farming Cool!” podcast, host Georges Collinet goes to Strathmore Business University in Nairobi to meet some of the students enrolled in a new junior management agribusiness training program created by AGCO Corporation and its partners. The project aims to lead young Africans into Africa’s agriculture value chain, an industry with abundant opportunities but is generally frowned upon as a less attractive career option by young people.

Produced by Afropop Worldwide, the “Making Farming Cool!” podcast series is part of IGD’s Africa Investment Rising campaign, a dynamic multimedia campaign to change the narrative on doing business in Africa.
