Firm holds webinar, urges youth participation in Agribusiness
A Nigerian digital commodities trading platform ComX on Thursday held a webinar aimed at promoting and encouraging the involvement of youths in the Agribusiness space.
The dialogue, held to commemorate the United Nation’s International Youth Day theme, “Transforming Food Systems: Youth Innovation for Human and Planetary Health”, underlined the importance of young Nigerian’s participating in such a global effort.
“We are always saying youths are the future, but now, youths are the now for agriculture”, Oluwayimika Angel Adelaja, Co-Founder/ED We Farm Africa, said during her address, adding that youths only need platforms to leverage on in the digital space.
Aisha Raheem, founder of Farmz2U, an agrictech enterprise, said there are many opportunities youths can engage in, stating that youths can take advantage of some platforms to invest.
ComX said it has granted investment opportunities to retail and institutional investors that want exposure to alternative assets and investments. At the same time, all of the products traded on ComX are traceable back to the farmers.
The digital trading platform, backed by Nigeria’s leading commodities market player, AFEX, said it reduces investment risks by providing a simple, easy and informative way of trading and investing in agriculture commodity-backed instruments.
