The second edition of IAEE

The first edition of IAEE was deliberately oriented to celebrate the African entrepreneurial genius of Switzerland. Based on the premise that with the majority of arable soils, vibrant youth and 60% of the continent's jobs being in agriculture, Africa is WELL STARTED, the team of ZION KICK-UP STARTUPS organized the second edition to shed light on the challenges and opportunities of global food around the theme "A sustainable food system in Africa". The event was both digital and in-person. Point of progress among others: ZION KICK-UP STARTUPS organized the trip of an expert from Cameroon to Lausanne for a sensitive topic: PGI (Protected Geographical Indications), case of Penja pepper.

                                                             “Building the Africa we want is POSSIBLE!” ​
