Thank you for riding with us into week three on Under 40 CEOs – Drive Your Ambition, where FAB drives the Chief Executive Officer at Simply Green to work in the Mitsubishi Pajero Sport. Itching to listen in to their conversation? We know you are, but before you dive in, get to know a little about this amazing Agropreneur below.

Shola Ladoja started what is his business today, by trying to solve a problem he and a few friends were faced with. Shola, who had planned to retire as a farmer didn’t know he would start his career in farming this early. The engineer who had worked in three different firms after his studies at the New York Institute of Technology moved to Nigeria to continue his engineering career.

However, there was a problem. Shola drank green juice almost every day in New York, but could not find any when he moved back to Nigeria. He decided to start producing green juice for himself and people like him who like it. He left his job at one of Nigeria’s biggest power distribution companies to focus on agriculture.

In May 2014, he launched his company and commenced the production of Simply Green Juices. With his farm now sitting on 6,500 acres of land, it is good to note that he started small with a paltry N250, 000. Watch episode 3 below:
