INTRODUCTION:
Technological innovation is taking place at a breath-taking pace. Simple, open source internet-based applications and services designed to enhance on-line collaboration are now available to the wider public at little or no cost at all. These new online technologies known as Web2.0 and Social Media applications enable people to collaborate, to create, share and publish information.

According to FAO’s Rural Youth and Young Farmers report, opportunities for learning practical skills in agriculture, better rural living, and income-generating activities are extremely limited. For youth and young farmers, access to production resources, credit and employment is almost non-existent in most countries.

This Agritech4Dev Global Twitter Chat will discuss and bring to the attention of Agribusiness Entrepreneurs the availability of web2.0 technologies and how they can be utilized to promote and market a youth-led Agribusiness Venture quickly, cheaply and efficiently.
