Securing Water for Food is an experimental program that is a partnership between the U.S. Government, Sweden, South Africa, and the Netherlands aimed at helping farmers around the world grow more food with less water. This innovative program incorporates a Shark Tank style competition that awards agricultural entrepreneurs money to help grow their companies. If they meet very strict benchmarks for customer growth, outside investment, and other metrics, they receive more money. If they don’t, they’re out of the program.
Securing Water for Food wanted help publicizing the unique program and its successes, and highlighting some of the innovative entrepreneurs who had received support from the program.
