Politics and Prune Juice Episode #12 – Interview with Jehiel Oliver of Hello Tractor
Matt | On 24, Mar 2016
It’s our first interview-only edition of the Politics and Prune Juice podcast!
Our host Matt Stevens talks with Jehiel Oliver, founder and CEO of Hello Tractor. The Nigerian-based company operates similar to Uber for farmers in sub-Saharan Africa by providing them with much needed resources to feed communities and improve crop yields. Find out Jehiel’s story, how he landed in Africa, the company’s growth strategy, and his chance meeting with President Barack Obama in Kenya.
The craziness in U.S. elections is also a topic we discuss. What do people abroad think of the cast of characters in the 2016 presidential race?
This informative interview shows the power of international entrepreneurship and serving overlooked markets. Stories like this need to be told more often!
