About this event

Funding a farm isn’t easy. Equipment, personnel, and promotional material all rapidly eat up precious resources. If you’re a new farmer, you’re probably searching for ways to reach the startup capital you need or to get those necessary cash infusions to boost your ability to scale up. One of the most innovative ways to start a farm today is crowdfunding. Crowdfunding a farm boils down to convincing your friends, family, and community to invest in your dream farm. The funding method offers a kickstart to your marketing strategy and a funding option with no repayment, all in one tantalizing package. Every farm needs a financial plan to succeed. Join us as we uncover this topic with Mothupi Kgopa, Afrifarm Crowd Co-founder and CEO.
