Chibuike Emmanuel

Chibuike Emmanuel is a Gazard Family Fellow.

Chibuike Emmanuel is a farmer and entrepreneur. He runs Green Stalks & Foliage, an agro-allied innovations outfit that operates a fish farm. He is also involved in Peter’s Coin, a crowd-funding startup focused on the fish value chain, and a co-founder of Spur-on-Stage, a media/communications firm that uses the arts as tool for social reconstruction. Active in community development, Chibuike also founded the Agriculture-is-Sexy Network, which uses unconventional approaches to make youth embrace agriculture, and EDEN-GCP, an environmental-sustainability initiative.

Chibuike studied mechanical engineering at the University of Port Harcourt, Nigeria and holds several entrepreneurship certifications. Having earlier participated in an Alliance farmer leadership course, he decided to join the GLFP in order to effectively share with others.

He believes that in order for young people to embrace agriculture, they need to explore ag biotech so that they can run efficient, profitable and sustainable agribusinesses.
