This UNAJUA series features South African agritech startup founder Karidas Tshintsholo.
Karidas leverages his ongoing agribusiness adventure in co-founding and leading KHULA! - an app that connects farmers to a formal marketplace - to debunk common myths and limiting beliefs associated with innovation in African agriculture. Karidas' outsider status in the agriculture business has shaped his ambition to disrupt the industry and desire to frame the sector constructively.
Prior to founding KHULA!, Karidas co-founded a South African media company called the Money Tree Group and is currently an Advisory Board Member of the prestigious Anzisha Prize.
