From an innovative idea, to raising $2 million in funding in under three years for a first-of-its-kind business in Nigeria. We all can definitely learn a thing or two from Onyeka Akumah, Founder and CEO of Farmcrowdy, the nation’s first digital agriculture platform.
On this episode of Binging with GameChangers, Onyeka talks to show host Seyi Banigbe, about his early beginnings and road to success.
Through his work at Farmcrowdy, he has so far impacted the lives of over 11,000 small-scale farmers across the nation in less than 3 years, and has a staff strength of over 40 innovative Nigerians.
In addition, Onyeka was named one of Africa’s 30 Innovators in the published 2018 Quartz list, amongst other accolades received for his impactful work.
The corporate gamechanger on this episode is Abiola Adekoya, MD/CEO of RMB Nigeria Stockbrokers, a subsidiary of global firm, First Rand Group. At 35, Abiola Adekoya became the Managing Director of FBN Securities, a subsidiary of First Bank of Nigeria Holdings Plc and even though she spent all of her early years in the Nigerian banking industry as a teller, marketer and many other things, Abiola is proof that a whole lot can be gained from building a career in banking.
