Executive Farmer Incubator Program (EFIP)
Serving as a well-intended, curriculum-driven stop gap for individuals passionate about any aspect of agriculture across its broad value chain, this non-degree certificate awarding training is targeted at mid-career professionals, retiring executives etc.
EFIP caters to people who are currently on paid employment, and can be available only on Saturdays. This training program was carried out in collaboration with Eweko Concepts and Epe Agribusiness Cluster.
The program runs for 12 and 8 weeks in Epe, Lagos state respectively. Trained by competent and diligent facilitators, graduates of EFIP were armed with knowledge and practical skills to set up, manage and scale up their agribusinesses.
