Birds and brains in Gabon - now there is a great idea
Throughout his life, Michael, a 31 year old from Gabon, has always been interested in nature, technology, and entrepreneurship. His business interests are a marriage of all three interests as he hopes to run a cutting edge poultry farm that makes money, uses technology, and is considerate of nature.
There is power in poultry. It has long been a staple source of protein in Gabon. However, for a population that relies on chicken, Gabon produces very little and primarily imports most of their chicken. Michael hopes to reverse this trend with is cutting edge poultry business.
Poultry, and then Some
When it comes to poultry, some produce hens for laying eggs, and others for consumption. Michael’s farm will include both. In addition to just producing chickens and eggs to eat, Michael’s business will take efficiency to the next level byproviding agriculture fertilizers and even pet food from the poultry waste. Typically a poultry farm deals with the waste in non-environmental or non-sustainable ways. With Michael’s business, the entire process will produce useful goods for the market.
