On November 5th 2016, Ojay Greene founder Yvette Ondachi was a speaker representing the company at the third annual African Business Practicum; an initiative of Yale University’s School of Management.  The Africa Business Practicum  entails  a first-of-its-kind, hands-on workshop that focuses on addressing critical problems faced by real businesses operating in Africa. Ojay Greene was the 2016 African Company of Focus at the event.

Also participating were invited students from leading business schools (in Africa and the US) and other partner institutions like YALI who collaboratively explored the challenges and opportunities of doing business in Africa through the lens of an organization operating on the continent.

The speakers and case evaluators represented key changemakers with a significant footprint in the African continent. They were inspirational and the feedback  that they offered the students was practical, contextually relevant, thought provoking and mentally stimulating.

The insights generated were A Class and they will go a long way to enhance the work Ojay Greene is doing to transform Agriculture in Africa and improve the livelihoods of smallholder farmers thereby changing the narrative for the African smallholder farmers.
