Co-founder and CEO of 8villages
Sanny Gaddafi has been a technopreneur since graduating in 2004 from Universitas Bina Nusantara, Indonesia. He launched a social media platform FUPEI that offered local language options to Indonesian users.
He also launched other social media ventures and eventually closed FUPEI in 2012. A chance meeting with French agronomist Mathieu Le Bras led to the development of an SMS-based information network for farmers and the creation of 8villages. Sanny became the CEO when Mathieu exited and moved to the UK.
