The region has been long suffering from the effects of climate change, underfunding and malnutrition in the local population. The Ventree and the University of East Africa (IUEA) project will deploy Web3 technologies such as Blockchain to empower millions of people to trade and benefit from the sale of carbon credits, while growing and selling 1000’s of tons of sustainable products globally such as Moringa, the consumer health care powder, oil and industrial grade nutraceutical.

Ventree’s Investor and Senior Advisor Dr. Gerd Meier zu Köcker visited the International University to discuss its partnership with Ventree Innovations to develop the agriculture model. Initial soil testing and well water research has begun, and the project will be operating in full force within Q4 for of 2022.

, said …” It was an iconic moment for me when

I found during my discussions with IUEA representatives, that rather than the expected traditional academia approach common to most universities, IUEA fosters R&D projects that are relevant to the market needs of the private sector with up-to-date skills of its young graduates. So, it’s not a surprise that for the past three years that the IUEA has been rated the BEST private university in Uganda by the Consumer’s Choice Group due to its focus on quality and practical education”.


Dr. Meier zu Köcker commented; “It was impressive to see that further ideas are in the pipeline to support local, but also international firms, in successfully coping with the challenges of the digital transformation of industry and education. Further investments in new, digitally-enhanced teaching and training facilities, like the Smart Lecture Rooms, have been completed and will be available for the IUEA students and interested parties by the end of this month, with Ventree Innovations support on the ground in Uganda.”
