Social Impact Project for Finance Experteer to Advice Farm to Feed to Become Investment Ready


How This Works

In the MovingWorlds Institute Global Fellowship, you will learn how to advance your for-good career while getting hands on experience on projects like this one.

Project Description and Impact

Farm to Feed is a social enterprise located in Kenya with the dual missions of increasing food affordability and decreasing impact on the environment through rescuing produce that would otherwise be left to rot. 50% of fruits and vegetables in sub-saharan Africa never make it to a consumer. This is devastating given that 32% of Kenyans are food insecure and food loss and waste account for 10% of greenhouse gases. Farm to Feed has created a market for imperfect and surplus fruits and vegetables in Kenya and provides the logistics to connect the supply to the demand.  Farm to Feed has a proven operating model and strong track record of growth. We began as an emergency-relief charity in April 2020 and have been operating 6 days a week since then. At the start of 2021 we transitioned into a for-profit social enterprise and grew our commercial business 2-3x every quarter of 2021. In order to meet our aspirations for scale and impact we will need to secure outside capital in 2022.

Our team currently does not have a specialist onboard around investments and talking to investors. This would really be something that can boost our confidence in our proposition and bring us to a success for the future. 

Farm to Feed is looking for short term support from a mid to senior-level expert with experience supporting start-ups to become investment-ready from a financial and investor perspective.
