AgDevCo celebrated its 4th anniversary by bringing together donors, investors, practitioners and others focused on the development of a sustainable agriculture sector in Africa for its annual event on 19th September 2013.
The theme of the event was Investing for Impact in African Agriculture: Stories from the Field, which illustrated how AgDevCo is partnering with its investees on the ground in Mozambique, Tanzania, Ghana, Zambia and Malawi to deliver positive benefits to smallholder farmers and local communities.
The afternoon commenced with a welcome from Keith Palmer (Chairman), whose comments included:
"We are grateful for the generous support of our funders whose commitments have allowed us to scale our operations across five countries where we are seeking to develop $30-40 m investment portfolios in each country."
Daniel Hulls (CEO) and Chris Isaac (Director of Business Development) continued the discussion and the second half of the afternoon featured a panel of AgDevCo team members and investees who highlighted AgDevCo's value-added role with respect to two investments in Mozambique and Ghana.
