The next generation of billionaires from Africa will be farmers

Akinwumi Adesina, a Nigerian Minister believes that farming will soon be producing more millionaires and billionaires than any other sector in Africa.
Adesina was named Forbes African of the Year in December 2013 for his reforms to his country's farming sector, according to a BBC report.
And most business leaders across the continent agree with Adesina, that farming could be an underexploited gold mine.
Succesful businessman, lawyer and parliamentary aspirant Victor Ogeto Swanya, says that "once Kenyans begin embracing modern methods of farming, then they will realize that there is a lot of potential in the field".
Swanya has a number of productive greenhouses at his home in Kisii.
His sentiments are shared by Danish whiz-kid Kresten Buch, who has had great success in technology investments around the globe.
"The one thing most people don't realize is that farming has come a long way, as a practice. If one particularly adopts modern techniques, then farming can be very profitable," Buch once told this reporter.
Buch hopes to start a properly-mechanised farm in Africa.
And those whose minds have been opened are already reaping fruits.
The former milk-hawking couple of Susan Muturi and Njoroge Muturi, recently announced that they will be setting up a Sh50m ultra-modern dairy facility.
But the duo, who own the Tassells Dairy Farm in Ruiru, did not have the millions they are talking about now when the venture started 11 years ago.
Njoroge worked as a herdsboy for a farmer in Githunguri, and was later fired after a disagreement with is employer. By the time he was leaving, he had enough money to buy two cows, and was lucky enough that his new landlord, inKiserian, allowed him to raise them in his compound.
His enterprising discipline saw him buy a new cow everytime he had saved enough money, from his salary and milk sales.
He met his wife, Susan, while hawking milk in town, and as fate would have it, she was also interested in dairy farming.
Through the internet, they managed to adopt proper husbandry techniques, rasing their herd to 400 dairy cows, which yiled 6,000 and 12,000 litres of milk per day. The enterprise is run on a two-acre farm.
Unlike the Muturis, Caleb Karuga had an enviable job, in the media, which he hoped to move away from. He at one time thought of quiting, but the thought that he would have to forfeit Sh1.5m in benefits saw him hold on. Luckily, he was retrenched, alongside tens others, as the media house he worked for restructured.
He went on to lease one acre piece of land in central Kenya and started poultry farming. Today, he operates three farms where he raises thousands of indigenous chicken, quails, guinea fowl. He also grows butternut, strawberry, sweet potatoes and sunflower.
Minister Adenisa believes Africa will be at a better place if the youth to see agriculture as a business, noting that, major local and international investors are now investing in agriculture.
“The number of seed companies alone has risen dramatically and the banks are lending to the sector more than ever before,” he said.
But farming, like every other rewarding career, is not a path plated with diamonds-It is a hard job. Luckily, for those who have a goal, and are willing to put in more than there fair share of tough work, the results soon become evident.(FARMBIZAFRICA.COM)

How to create a 5-minute winning pitch deck

Finding an investor for your startup is a lot like finding the right romantic partner. Imagine you’re at a speed dating event, and you only have 5 minutes to get your romantic interest’s attention. Where do you start? How should you carry yourself? Do you say hello or do you say hi? There is so much at stake! In a matter of minutes, you’d probably be cut out from the person’s life forever, so you have got to do some homework here.

Likewise, pitching to an investor requires some know-how and a lot of preparation. While there are no shortcuts to go around this, here are 7 tips to help you deliver a stellar pitch to seal the deal.

1. Know your story
It’s cliché, but you can’t avoid this one. Work on your company’s vision, mission, and goals. Pick an inspiring story and stick to it. Why is your company unique? Why should people use your product? What problems can your product solve? Bottom line – engage your audience and get them on the same page.

2. Know your investors
Who are you pitching to? What are their objectives? Are you talking to the right people who’d consider putting their money down on your business? Understand your investors’ interests, and craft your pitch in a language that would appeal to their needs. In that way, you will be able to develop a purposeful and productive conversation with them.

3. Have a “back up” plan
Always back up your pitch with facts and figures. Include in your pitch deck your startup’s traction and furnish specific growth numbers – revenue growth, gross margins, number of users, return users, or users engagement. However, there’s a fine line between informative and overwhelming. Be careful not to make your slides look like a spreadsheet!

4. Understand the potential risks
Investors don’t just want an ideal business plan. They want to know if you understand the competition and potential risks. What proactive or precautionary steps would you take in order to stand out from your competitors? Walk your potential investors through your thought process and convince them that they can trust you for a good looking ROI.

5. Highlight your team’s experience & credentials
You may be the founder or the CEO of your startup, but remember, your investors are also investing in the people who are going to make the business a success story. So share the limelight with your fellow soldiers – briefly highlight your teammates’ awesome skills set, experience, and drive to grow the business. Ultimately, having a passionate team is already half a battle won.

6. It’s all about selling
Having a rad product is great, but if you aren’t able to sell it, it comes to naught. Potential investors are equally interested, if not more, in your marketing strategy. What are your marketing platforms? Are your marketing dollars working hard for you? What’s your LTV and CAC?

7. Always, always proofread your pitch deck
Just as practicing your pitch is crucial, you can never over proofread or edit your pitch deck. In fact, it should always be a WIP file. The slightest mistake or typo says a lot – for one, you aren’t a detailed person, and that alone will cast a shadow over your otherwise brilliant product.
