This week, Michael R. Bloomberg, Founder of Bloomberg L.P. and Bloomberg Philanthropies, and Three-Term Mayor of New York City introduced the inaugural class of Bloomberg New Economy Catalysts: a new global community of public and private sector innovators and entrepreneurs accelerating solutions to today’s greatest problems.
Farmerline Co-founder and CEO Alloysius Attah was named as part of the 2021 class of Bloomberg New Economy Catalysts who are creating true impact at the cutting edge of technology and policy – across borders, in emerging economies and beyond – to build a more equitable and sustainable global future.
‘The Bloomberg New Economy Catalysts are a group of talented entrepreneurs, scientists, policymakers, and other leaders taking on pressing global challenges,’ said Bloomberg. ‘Many of them are from countries that are having an increasingly big impact on the world economy. And I know our forum will benefit from their contributions.’
Alloysius co-founded Farmerline in 2013 with operations serving 800 farmers across Ghana. Today, the organization has worked with over 70 partners and 600,000 farmers across 25 countries. He currently leads the vision of Farmerline with a specific focus on fundraising and strategic partnership development, and will participate in the Bloomberg New Economy Catalyst event on June 30. This unique virtual platform will explore, debate and share with the world what’s next in the fields of climate, agriculture, bio-tech, e-commerce, space and digital money.
By 2050 emerging markets will account for 56% of global output, up from just 21% at the start of this century, according to a Bloomberg New Economy Special Report by Bloomberg Economics. This group is charting the course for a better, more inclusive future for those economies and the global economy as a whole.
