WARC

Business Member
A strong passion drives our lives towards dedicating it to protect our planet and eradicate misery, poverty and hunger. The outlook is well-known to all of us: increasing population, inevitable climate change, and forced migration driven by human and natural causes, risk of even more pain and suffering on innocent lives. This great aspiration translates into a humble start in rural Sierra Leone. Here, we are working hard to increase food security, production, and nutritional diversity to create more value at the farmer level. We treat the soil that nurtures our food as humanity's greatest asset.
Our model is simple. We believe that the interaction between people and technology can generate real structural change. There is no room to spread obsolete technology that increases the divergence be- tween developed economies and the countries where we work. However, there is a need to develop smart business models to enable farmers to access the best available machinery, agricultural practices, and technical advice in a way that is economically beneficial for all parties. And that's what we do.
My colleagues and I share common values, and our diverse backgrounds complement each other. Our team is as diverse as it can get, with innovators and passionate change-makers from North and South America, Europe, Asia, and Africa, with professional backgrounds ranging from technology to agron- omy to business and development. This diversity nourishes us with ideas that are reflected in our inno- vative business models and impact-driven development. We believe in our work's long-term purpose, making this adventure our lifestyle.
