One young agriculture entrepreneur stands a chance of winning K10 million as a booster capital if they impress a panel of three judges during a Standard Bank-facilitated Phuka Pitch Night underway at BICC in Lilongwe.
The ultimate winner will be drawn from a group of five shortlisted agriculturally-linked SMEs who have completed a six-week business incubation program now in its second year.
The Phuka Incubation program is a partnership between Standard Bank Plc and Lilongwe-based Synergy Labs.
The current cohort is in partnership with the Agriculture Transformation Centre (ATC).
Phuka or growth starter is the first business incubation program of its kind in Malawi.
