Kenyan agri-tech startup Taimba wins $10k at SXSW

By Tom Jackson

The Food+City Challenge Prize is an international competition among business startups encouraging innovation in the urban food system, which was this year part of the SXSW programming for the first time.

After receiving almost 100 applications from 14 countries, 14 startup finalists were invited to pitch their food logistics solution at the event in Austin to deliver their pitch and receive feedback from a panel of Food+City coaches to further refine their value propositions.
