About Skirmantas Nikstele

Skirmantas Nikstele - Hemp entrepreneur that has made a successful seven-figure exit of his business to NYSE listed company.

Mr. Nikstele was the first to start converting organic farmers in Baltic states to farming hemp, which later led to Lithuania, Latvia, and Estonia becoming leaders of Europe’s hemp industry, second only to France. After these rapid changes, he successfully raised investment capital from ACME group for further growth of Agropro and co-founded Borela, now a global leader in hemp grain processing.

Skirmantas Nikstele is also a founder of Fiber Crop Farmers Association, dedicated to hemp growers, where he is still serving as a member of the Board. He jointly instrumented most of the changes to legal framework of hemp farming and processing in Lithuania.
