Abstract
Across the continent of Africa, there are young people who use their experience in farming and knowledge in business to engage in agriculture in a whole new way. Unlike traditional farmers, these young people are in tune with technology and are passionate about changing the status quo on the continent. They are called Agripreneurs. The world bank projects that the world’s population will reach about 9.6 billion by 2050 and this means that current food production needs to be increased by 70 per cent. A significant percentage of the increase in the world’s population will come from the continent of Africa. The continent will have about 2 billion people at this time. The role of Agripreneurs in improving food security on the continent will be paramount. This project is about creating a resource planning software for youth Agripreneurs on the continent to help them manage their resources in the face of disastrous land tenure systems, climate change, and the increase in the use of land for non-agricultural purposes.
