Greenbles, a Lagos-based agtech startup, has launched an electronic service portal as it looks to push its mission of leveraging technology to solve Africa’s food problem.
Oladapo Kasumu, cofounder and CEO, confirmed the development in a statement on Wednesday.
Oladapo, who spoke on the significance of agriculture to the development of the country, noted that the agtech company would leverage technology to deliver “affordable and easy adaptation” for business people in agriculture.
He said: “Agric has consistently contributed between 20% to 25% to our GDP. In numbers, that’s approximately $100b. While this shows the enormity of opportunity in that space, we have barely scratched the surface as a nation.
“Our technology approach is affordable and easy adaptation for farmers in Nigeria to help achieve sustainable farming.”
Greenbles was founded in 2015 by Saeed Oshin, an economist and IT specialist.
The technology for agriculture startup is backed by grants from Tony Elumelu Foundation, Quickteller, Foundry, amongst others.
