Didier Drogba, Chelsea Legend, and greatest footballer turned social and environmental activist has joined hands with 5ire. Founded by visionary entrepreneurs from India, Pratik Gauri, and Prateek Dwivedi, 5ire signs up Drogba as their Business Advisor to work towards a shared vision of pushing the boundaries of sustainability and making this planet a better place.
As an advisor for 5ire, Drogba will leverage his network and the Didier Drogba Foundation to have more corporates and institutions on 5ireChain, the world’s first and only sustainable blockchain.
Never one to shy away from social issues, Drogba is credited to have famously stalled a civil war in his country, on the day he led the Ivory Coast team to their first-ever berth in the Football World Cup finals. Since then, he has been known to have been actively involved in social causes, receiving an honorary degree in recognition of his contributions.
On this occasion, 5ire's CEO and Founder Pratik Gauri said, "Didier is a football legend and a superstar in the truest sense of the term. He is also an incredibly empathetic human being and an agent of change, who cares for this planet and its future.

We are delighted to have him on board as 5ire’s business advisor and look forward to working with him towards a common goal.”
Speaking on this occasion, Didier Drogba said, “I have been working on social issues for more than a decade, and I have realised how societal and environmental factors are intricately intertwined. This is where I have felt that technology can play a part, to pave the path towards sustainability. My association with 5ire is a natural culmination of my experiences and beliefs and I am thrilled to partner with this cutting-edge brand, helmed by young tech visionaries like Pratik, and Prateek, who are working towards not only revolutionising the way the world does business, but to ultimately make the planet a better place to live in.”
Prateek Dwivedi, Co-Founder, 5ire, added, “Didier is an inspirational leader. Not only is he a legend of the world’s greatest sport, but he also happens to be deeply involved in the betterment of the world around him. His exploits in social and environmental activities, and his constant endeavor to make the world a better place for children and future generations, make him a natural fit for the 5ire ecosystem.
