This season, we’re showcasing stories from the inaugural class of Changing Narratives Africa Fellowship, a highly selective program for African food entrepreneurs who are ready to scale their brands into global markets. This week’s guest is Chichi Eriobu, the Founder and CEO of Phronesis Foods Nigeria Limited, a globally-growing food Processing, packaging & export company, creating new food product lines from existing raw materials. A Christian, and multiple award-winning entrepreneur, Chichi was awarded Best Female Business Speaker of the Year (Leadership Mind Awards, 2017) and Outstanding Entrepreneur of the Year Award (BAOBAB International Awards, 2018). In 2020, she was appointed one of the young people to sit on the Board of Crown Point College of Health Sciences and Technology, Ogun State. And in 2021, she won an award for influence through Business & Entrepreneurship, presented to her by FBI Awards. Having been selected for multiple business grants opportunities, Chichi is teaching other small businesses how to leverage grant funding for their business growth, with her first eBook, ‘How to Pitch Your Business’. Chichi’s vision is to build a globally recognized solution-based business, and impact other young entrepreneurs with the investment of her personality.
