Business Name: Leland Group
Business Overview: We see an opportunity to explore the development of a textile factory in Ethiopia. Ethiopia has emerged as an important hub for textile manufacturing globally. We see textiles as an important industry that can withstand technological shifts over the long term. The idea is that no matter what happens to the world, we feel that people will continue to wear clothes. The initial venture will be an Ethiopia-based textile factory that will sell its apparel products directly to end customers as well as to major global retailers. Other areas of interest include genomics, automation, and fragrances.
