Anita Okoye is a social activist, serial entrepreneur, author, and mother of three, who is extremely well versed in what is required to oversee the building of a successful startup and its mission.
In April 2016, she publicly quit her job as a Strategic Business Developer for an Oil & Gas company in Nigeria to become a full-time entrepreneur and Mom. She has testified to never regretting her decision.
During the time out of work, she has lent her name and time to worthy causes like the Cashew Apple Project (CAP), which is focused on contributing to the change of the world’s perception of Africa.
The cause’s mission is to re-write the age-old view that, Africa has found itself on the wrong side of “perception control”, and has been viewed by the world as far less than it actually is, both literally and figuratively.
She has used this podium to contribute positivity to the African narrative. She gave a passionate and moving talk during the African Trade and Investment Global Summit 2018 where she gave a presentation -The Cashew Apple Project “Uncovering Africa’s Hidden Jewels.
ABC of Africa is also one of her contribution on the Cashew Apple Project– this child book highlights some of the hidden jewels within Africa’s agriculture as it lists 26 foods that grow abundantly on the continent.
Anita Okoye’s, ever-evolving story, has just added a new page with her bold move into the fashion industry. Tannk Co. for Kids is her latest entrepreneurial venture. Tannk Co. for Kids is an affordable luxury children’s apparel company which is set to launch this year with quality and comfortably priced clothing wear for boys and girls in the 0-10 age bracket. These will include casual and formal attire for children, as well as baby layettes and underwear.
Popularly known as the wife of Paul Okoye, she is no doubt a true African treasure.
