The Youth Business Challenge is developed by AgriProFocus and the Ethio-Netherlands Trade for Agricultural Growth (ENTAG) in support of the Embassy of the Kingdom of Netherlands in Ethiopia. The Youth Business Challenge seeks to bridge the gap between university graduates and agri-food industries in Ethiopia.

With a focus on circular economy, the Youth Business Challenge connects Dutch and local agribusinesses in Ethiopia with an agrofood waste product with teams of interdisciplinary fresh-graduates (20-35 years old) ready to help these businesses find a profitable way to re-use their waste.
