PAGE ONE - WHO WE ARE
The Agricademy is an agricultural education and knowledge organisation of excellence, focussed on delivering cutting edge, world class, and relevant agriculture-related content to individuals and organisations throughout Africa.
The Agricademy is a member of the Dragonfly Africa Group and, consistent with the Group’s focus on bringing about a food value chain revolution in Africa, the Agricademy has the mission of supporting and enabling a “next-gen” African green revolution, by curating and delivering best-in-class content in agriculture for students, practitioners and allied professionals in the agriculture space.
PAGE TWO - WHAT WE BELIEVE
We believe strongly that the gap between Africa’s potential and actualisation in the area of agriculture must be addressed through real capacity development; which to us means a focus, not just on disseminating information but also, on developing the ability to execute, adapt and innovate for today’s challenges and tomorrow’s priorities.
We believe that the world is changing, and that as new information emerges about nutrition, the environment, the challenges of traditional commercial farming models, and the emergence of new and potentially game-changing technologies, so must the agribusiness landscape within which food is produced.
We believe that Africa represents the largest untapped incubator for a world in search of global food security, and we believe that true capacity development that bridges the information gap between frontier markets and Africa is the key to unlocking a universe of new possibilities in food and agribusiness.
PAGE THREE - WHAT WE DO
At the core of our work is an unapologetic preoccupation with delivering knowledge, experience and passion to Africa’s agriculture and ancillary sectors, and an unrelenting commitment to nurturing an ecosystem whose mastery of its craft makes is possible, in turn, for Africa to realise its agribusiness potential.
We work with world-renowned experts and leading content providers to ensure access to cutting edge thinking across disciplines, and build for our clients and alumni a global learning community where a constantly evolving knowledge library can be dynamically built, and best practices shared.
PAGE FOUR - HOW WE DO IT
We deliver on our capacity building objectives through a combination of structured and experiential learning programs, ecosystem development initiatives, and carefully curated publications. Our goal is to consistently deliver robust learning experiences to our students and clients.
Our leaning tracks for individuals and professionals combine traditional academic course structures, and more innovative learning models. For individuals, The Agricademy offers traditional Certificate Courses and more workplace-readiness oriented Graduate Boot Camps; and for professionals, we combine structured Professional Courses with a less formal “Knowledge Garden” Series.
Our certificate courses include:
• The Agripreneur’s Mini MBA (Access brochure here)
Graduate Boot Camps
Targeted at recent graduates, our boot camps offer intensive multidisciplinary crucible experiences, designed to deliver broad-based workplace–readiness orientation for new graduates with an interest in pursuing agribusiness careers.
• Agribusiness Boot Camp (Access brochure here)
• Agritech Boot Camp (Access brochure here)
Targeted at specific professional groups, the courses are designed to upgrade the knowledge of practitioners in core agriculture and ancillary areas – including finance, insurance, law and policy development.
• AgriFin for Agricultural Financial Partners (Access brochure here)
• Agricultural Credit Structuring for Bankers (Access brochure here)
Brown Bag Lunches
Our Brown Bag Lunches are typically “quick hit” sessions around specific agricultural topics. The range of topics on offer varies from time to time, and often reflects the topics about which we receive consistent enquiries. (Access our latest Brown Bag Lunch schedule here)
ECOSYSTEM DEVELOPMENT INITIATIVES
Our Ecosystem Development Initiatives are targeted at building communities of excellence in agricultural knowledge, by creating fora where practitioners can share ideas and be exposed to new concepts, and delivering to them membership in an ecosystem that provides access to a community of thought leaders and subject-matter experts.
The Tellus Knowledge Garden Series
Sponsored and curated by Tellus Capital, The Knowledge Garden Series is an innovative subscription-based knowledge experience designed to expose African practitioners to cutting edge global thinking about the future of food and agriculture, foster real conversations and trigger deliberate and collective actions to secure Africa’s place as a key contributor and beneficiary of that future. The series is business-focussed, and offers two levels of enrollment – the Green Club, to which all alumni are automatically admitted, as well as the invitation-only Tellus Club which admits members to high-level sessions, an international speaker series, and annual international “Agri-Scape” agritourism voyages designed to expose African practitioners to global trends in action.
