Alloysius Attah is CEO and co-founder of Farmerline. At five years old, he moved to stay with his late aunt, who was a small-scale farmer in rural Ghana. While staying there, he experienced the challenges small-scale farmers go through to produce food and support their families. Upon making it to college, Attah became determined to give back to the people who supported him. This led to the creation of two start-up organizations: Alloyworld, a photography and video production company and iCottage Networks, a web and mobile startup. In 2013, Attah launched Farmerline Ltd in partnership with Emmanuel Owusu Addai in order to support small-scale farmers. Today, the company has reached over 200,000 farmers across five countries in Africa. As CEO of Farmerline, Attah leads the vision and goals for the organization and focuses his efforts on business development and product design.
He has received numerous awards for his work including the Echoing Green Global Fellowship and the Cordes Fellowship. He was finalist of the HRM Prince of Wales and Unilever Sustainable Living Young Entrepreneur Award at the Cambridge Institute of Sustainable Leadership.
Attah is committed to empowering small-scale farmers like his aunt who are facing similar challenges across Africa.
