Silo Africa, a Kenyan agritech company founded by Eliud Rugut, has secured second place at the prestigious AYuTe NextGen Challenge held in Kigali, Rwanda.

The AYuTe NextGen competition, launched in 2024 by Heifer International, is a youth-oriented initiative designed to spur a technological revolution within Africa’s agricultural sector.

It seeks to identify and celebrate young agri-entrepreneurs whose innovations hold promise for transforming the continent’s agricultural landscape.

Silo Africa’s innovative approach impressed the judges, earning them the runner-up position. The company provides smallholder farmers with access to digitised grain silos.

This technology not only mitigates post-harvest losses, a significant challenge for African farmers, but also safeguards their livelihoods from the detrimental effects of climate change.

The AYuTe NextGen Challenge gathering, held under the theme “Reimagining Africa’s Agriculture in the Next 50 Years,” brought together key stakeholders from across the continent, including government officials, global representatives, and regional experts.
