I am Joana, a social entrepreneur. I founded Joadre Business Lab in 2019 and Joadre platform in 2014. I was born in Edo state, Nigeria and have spent over a decade in Europe. My current base is Vienna, Austria and Lagos, Nigeria.
My passion to build the capacity of African entrepreneurs and connect them to the global space has made me launch and complete dozens of projects like the NaWa film festival connecting 6 EU countries to Nigeria. I produced several films and released two biographical books. In the last 4 years, I raised funds to develop a prototype for a mass textile production network in Lagos serving stores in Europe. These projects were spearheaded by the Austrian government and private investors.
Through my work as a social entrepreneur, I have been honoured to receive numerous awards. In my training and mentorship program, I will be bringing you the best content and solutions from the diaspora and network of experts.
