Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation

In 2013, the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation and One Acre Fund launched a three-year, $11.6 million partnership to leverage our unique operating model and bring innovative agriculture technologies to the doorsteps of rural farm families. The project brought access to high-impact agriculture technologies to One Acre Fund farm families, and helped create new technology adoption partnerships with African governments to reach country-wide scale. 

The Gates Foundation renewed their support in 2016, with a three-year, $6.3 million partnership to create more tailored agronomic recommendations to boost crop yields, and to test new types of financial services for farmers.
