Alloysius Attah

Having made it to college, Alloysius became determined to give back to the people who supported him. This led to the creation of two start-up organisations: Alloyworld,a photography and video production company, and iCottage Networks, a Web and Mobile startup. In 2013, Alloysius launched Farmerline Ltd in partnership with Emmanuel Owusu Addai in order to support small-scale farmers.
