About

Olawale is a Nigerian and of course African.

He is on both side of the divide both as a career person and an entrepreneur. From 8 to 5 he diligently delivers on his job in an international seed company in the product management department. This role takes him from one farming community to the other engaging farmers and introducing them to better technology to improve productivity while also identifying the many gaps that exists.

Other than this, he is also an Agric-entrepreneur doing his best to build his less than 5 years old agribusiness. Primary among the priority of the enterprise is agriculture advocacy focused on youth through use of social media via the Agropreneur Naija brand and providing business support services to small scale agribusinesses and startups.

Volunteering runs is in his blood from my university days through Junior Chambers International (JCI). Thus he currently volunteers for the Young Professionals for Agricultural Development (YPARD) and the Nigeria Alliance for Science.

Olawale has a degree in Agricultural Engineering from the Federal University of Technology Akure, Nigeria and a Certificate in Sustainable Integrated Farming Systems from the Songhai Centre Porto Novo Benin Republic.

  1. Hello,
    My name is Michelle Potter and I am a rabbit breeder in the United States.
    I have recently become very interested in learning more about helping developing countries raise rabbits as a sustainable income and food source.
    Upon doing my research, I came across your website and found it very interesting.
    If you would like to correspond, I would like to learn more about the rabbit industry in Africa.
    I look forward to hearing from you.
    Best Regards, Michelle

    1. hi,
      I am a farmer in cameroon and deal in rabbits too. Raising rabbits have not been very easy for me.Had to learn from mouth to mouth and most at times its a try by error thing until you discover what really works for the rabbit.

      I have worked with many other farmer raising rabbits and problems faced are similar. I usually go to the internet to search on some helpful tips but most at times, the results you get are products we cant get here or that are very expensive to get.

      It will be intresting if you could share your know how on how to raise rabbits and use it for sustainable income and food source.
