Next to the annual GoGettaz Agripreneur Prize which VC4A has been a partner of since 2019, we collaborate around the creation of a vibrant online community platform with over 9,000 registered agri-professionals across the globe who are interacting, learning, providing mentorship and sharing experiences on youth agripreneurship and providing solutions to current challenges in the food system.
