The Enterprise Village in partnership with Ghana Tech Lab under the Pathway to Sustainable Employment Program is organizing its maiden local startup summit. The theme for this year’s summit is, “Sustainable Business Development and Job Creation in Accra using mobile technologies”. The event will be held at The Enterprise Village Hub in Dzorwulu.
The local startup summit is geared towards providing an avenue for our trainees from the Ghana Tech Lab Base Program to pitch their business innovative ideas to seasoned business people and serial entrepreneurs. The trainees under the Base Program have gone through a six-week training on Mobile Application Development and this summit is a space where they get to showcase their expertise in the past weeks.
Successful teams during the pitch event will then proceed to the incubation phase of the Base Program to develop their ideas into businesses while the rest who didn’t make it, will also proceed into the employability phase of the program.
The aim of this summit is to serve as a means for young Ghanaians to create and build their own businesses to curb the rate of unemployment in the country.
The summit will be attended by entrepreneurs, investors, and other businesspeople within the ecosystem. It is also opened to the public.
