    The Land Accelerator

    There has never been a better time to invest in land restoration. Restoring degraded land has the potential to become big business. Entrepreneurs are finding new ways to make money from sustainably managed forests and farms. Some are responding to governmental incentives. Others are responding directly to the market, restoring land to generate new products and services, or to differentiate their offerings from the competition. Such enterprises are profiting by breathing new life into unproductive land.

    To help with these efforts The World Resources Institute and Fledge have partnered to create The Land Accelerator, a 4-day intense program to train and mentor entrepreneurs from select African countries.

    December 3-6, 2018
    Nairobi, Kenya

    Seeking entrepreneurs who are working to improve the ecological function of a degraded landscape. This may include working on reforestation, sustainable forestry, climate-smart agriculture, and non-timber forest projects.

    Travel costs will be covered for applicants from Ethiopia, Kenya, Malawi, Niger, DRC, Ghana, Tanzania, and Liberia. Companies from elsewhere in Africa are also welcome to apply.  There is no fee for the program.  Neither is there any guaranteed investment, but some participants may be invited to future Fledge sessions in other cities.
