2SCALE

2SCALE is one of the largest agribusiness incubators in Africa, working with farmers and small-scale entrepreneurs in 8 countries. We build networks that connect farmers, buyers and intermediaries, enabling them to create and grow new businesses. We also enable private firms to find business opportunities for sourcing products from, or selling agro-inputs to, smallholder farmers in Africa.

The goal of 2SCALE is to improve rural livelihoods and food security in 8 countries in sub-Saharan Africa by developing competitive agro-food industries.
