We were out-of-office yesterday due to the public holiday, so our Monday newsletter is out on a Tuesday. Here's our brief update for the week:
We are looking for Zambian agribusiness SMEs to participate in an accelerator grant mechanism. Together with the CGIAR through the International Water Management Insititute (IWMI), the 'Accelerating the Impact of the CGIAR’s Climate Research for Africa (AICCRA)' initiative will be launching an accelerator that seeks to identify and reward suitable partners to run climate-smart agriculture innovations (CSA) activities. By participating in this programme, you will gain an investment that can help you scale your activities and have access to necessary partnerships. Register here.

The Demo Day for the BongoHive FinTech Challenge: Inclusive Insurance edition which was scheduled for last Thursday has been postponed to Thursday 25 November 2021. This is to allow our participating FinTech startups and insurance companies to have more time to align their business strategies and offerings. We will continue to keep you updated on the programme as we go along.
This week’s FREE Boost with Facebook sessions are all about how to use Instagram to tell the best stories about your business, and gain more customers. More details are shared below.

Until next week! Have a lovely one.
