NpM Announces the Winners of the NpM Innovator’s Challenge

Agri-WalletApollo Agriculture and VanderSat are the three winners of the NpM Innovator’s Challenge! Each winner received EUR 125,000 to pilot their solutions in an implementation project.

Geospatial information technologies are available for smallholder farmers to boost agricultural production, however the link to finance is hardly ever made. In order to increase their yields, smallholder farmers need finance to buy inputs and fertilizers, to invest in storage facilities, among other things. The NpM Innovator’s Challenge incentivized technology companies to transform their geodata-based solutions for smallholder farmers and make them available for the financial sector.
