ABOUT THE FOUNDER

RITA ISIBANurturing understanding and collaboration between the sustainability markets of Africa and Europe are at the forefront of my actions. So, I established Aphropean Partners from the need to inspire and enable business and development in Africa.

Given that I have made profitable sustainability solutions my focal point, I work with strategic partners to develop, implement and promote educational programs and business linkage promotion.

I am the former general secretary of the Nigerians in Diaspora Organisation Europe, consultant to the Diaspora Innovation Institute, member of the Austrian Federal Chamber of Commerce, member of the Public Affairs Network, and on the board member of ConscienceMatter.org.

Certified in Business Consulting, Knowledge Management, Peacebuilding & Conflict Resolution, Equality & Diversity, I hold a Bachelor of Science Degree in Business and European Studies from University of Hertfordshire,  Postgraduate Certificate in Business Administration and Masters in Business Administration (MBA) from Edinburgh Business School. I am trilingual in English, German and Yoruba.
