We have been named finalists to present our innovation at the Global Entrepreneurship Summit which will be held in Kenya this month of July and will bring together startups, investors, entrepreneurs and dignitaries from all over the world. The chief guest will be The President of the United States of America Barack Obama hosted by His Excellency the President of Kenya Uhuru Kenyatta CGH.
We are very much excited to be part of this historic event that is coming to Sub Saharan Africa for the first time since its inception in 2010. We were selected from an initial application of 792 innovations from 134 countries globally. A shortlisting of 76 innovations from 34 countries followed from which the final 15 start ups and 15 ideas were obtained after a 1 Month voting period. We are among 15 startup finalists that will be pitching our innovations before H.E President Uhuru Kenyatta CGH and H.E President Barack Obama, all invited investors, venture capitalists and dignitaries.
It goes without saying that we are beyond privileged and honoured to be representing Kenya in this competition. We would like to thank all our friends and esteemed clients that voted for us as the best greenhouse construction company to get to the finals. This achievement would not have been possible without your support.
As we head to the Global Entrepreneurship Summit as the only agriculture start up finalist in Africa, we would like to assure you of our continued devotion and passion in innovating and solving challenges facing our agricultural sector not only in Kenya but also Africa at large. We cannot stress enough the importance of this sector to this continent.
Thank you once again for helping us move a step further in making digital farming a reality for African farmers.
