In this week’s episode of #WeBackAgripreneurs, we speak with Dr. Apeh Omede, an agriprofessional and academic who founded The GreenRise Hub, a virtual accelerator and the first accelerator with a sole focus on AgriTech innovation in Nigeria.
Apeh shares incredible insight into the role of research in inspiring innovation, how industry can engage with academia to propel innovation as well as the gaps that agri-innovators can fill in the market.
He also shares some of the innovations that the first cohort of The GreenRise Hub virtual accelerator are working on, and how the ecosystem can position itself to better serve innovators from an early stage.
Apeh is a huge inspiration and such an asset in agripreneurship across the continent and globally.
