Coming from a family of entrepreneurs, Lawrence Mmari has always been passionate about someday becoming an entrepreneur. However, although he was a graduate, he had no prior knowledge of business management until he encountered the Tony Elumelu Foundation Entrepreneurship Programme. Through the programme, he was better equipped with the necessary skills to successfully run his business, Flow Farm.
Flow Farm has impacted its community by making life and the environment more sustainable with its products. They have integrated technology with common commercial activities like farming which has made farming easier and used game-changing technology to drive economic growth. They have also trained and empowered youths within their community and empowered them to start their horticulture business.
During the programme, he was appropriately guided by world-class mentors and industry experts on how to be innovative, competitive and take hold of opportunities in the market. Since then, he has been able to expand his business, increase the size of his employees and sustain his family’s livelihood.
