Smart and effective collaboration is paramount to your business success as an entrepreneur because the 21st century is all about forging relationships.

There is no question that the world is converging and becoming smaller, faster every day. A 2016 PwC study of more than 1,400 CEOs across 83 countries found that they were more worried about the increasingly complicated business landscape than they were five years ago.

The shortage of food in Uganda has become so severe that South Sudan and the Democratic Republic of Congo have also been affected as they rely heavily on food supplies from Uganda. Some blame this crisis on the smallholding peasant farmers, most of whom are illiterate, utilize antiquated methods and agricultural tools, and are unable to take advantage of funds allocated to the sector to produce the food needed. So what is the solution, and how do we encourage highly educated, entrepreneurial and environmentally conscious young Africans to create agribusiness start-ups using technologies and business practices of modern farming?

Bear in mind that 21st century consumers know what they want, when they want it, and how they want it. Consumers are becoming more and more particular about the quality of the food they consume, and more discerning about its provenance, needing to know which producers it is coming from.
