Akapko-Lado Gbagbode Edouard

Position: CRIIT-LADO Concept

Having completed his graduate studies in Technology, Akapko-Lado Gbagbode found that there was a lack of processing machinery in African countries, and often the purchase of these machines from outside was expensive and required costly external expertise in the event of breakdowns.

After his selection as one of the beneficiaries of the Tony Elumelu Entrepreneurship Programme, he received several training sessions that focused on diverse business management topics. The technical and financial support enabled him to turn his ideas into reality, embarking on research towards the manufacturing of Agro-food.  Since then, he has been able to meet the needs of his communities, while preserving the economy and creating jobs.
