Roland Fomundam

Roland Fomundam pioneered the development and deployment of the first solar dehydrator in Cameroon. He also introduced the mechanical water pumps, green charcoal, corn deshellers and of recent, the low cost greenhouse technology through his company GreenHouse Ventures (GHV) Ltd founded in 2014. These cost effective greenhouse farms have been instrumental in enabling farmers to produce food year round, ensuring continuous profits while saving the environment. Since inception, the company has successfully introduced greenhouse farming to Cameroon and Cameroonians in a way that has attracted and engaged more youths in the industry than usual. His models are now being emulated and replicated in other African countries like Uganda, Nigeria, Mali, Ivory Coast and Ghana where the company is currently carrying out studies for proper implementation.

Roland Fomundam holds a Master of Science in Technology Entrepreneurship and a dual Bachelors in Biology and Business Management from Northeastern University, USA. Roland is a serial entrepreneur and a lecturer in multiple Universities in Cameroon where he teaches Innovation and Entrepreneurship.
