Episode 12: Michael Ocansey, Co-founder of AgroCenta, on using technology to manage farmers, farmland in Ghana

Episode 12 of Building the Future with Dotun is here. In this episode, Michael Ocansey, the CTO and Co-Founder of AgroCenta answers questions from Dotun Olowoporoku. Listen to how he uses tech to make the sale and transportation of produce seamless.

AgroCenta uses tech to aggregate small holder farmers in rural farming communities, and give them access to market, capital and resources.

AgroCenta runs one of the largest agriculture businesses in Ghana without owning a single farmland.

Mike is a software engineer who created a platform to aggregate and connect small holder farmers to big companies that need their produce. He is currently working with a brewery…. building the future of farming in Africa.

The start-up aims to sign up 1000 farmers, working on 1000 hectares of land in Ghana, barely scratching the surface of opportunities!

 In this episode you’ll learn:

  • How AgroCenta is using technology to make the sale and transportation of produce seamless
  • AgroCenta’s fool-proof way of on-boarding farmers
  • How AgroCenta is helping farmers to access credit from financial institutions, as well as educating them to cultivate better produce
  • More about Swappaholics, Michael’s first startup, and how it metamorphosed into AgroCenta
  • Some thoughts on the Ghanaian startup ecosystem and the opportunity for growth
  • And much more
