Through the “Social Enterprise Support / Start-up Promotion”- With funding from SEZ through SHARE foundation Germany, we incubated 15 businesses in Takoradi, (Western Region) and Navrongo (Upper East Region) over a project period of one and a half years. In addition to the incubation framework of the businesses they did also receive special training in social entrepreneurship (strategy, product/service development, marketing, sales) to be able to work economically, productively, and be financially independent.
We have partnered with Yunus Environment Hub, Germany to incubate businesses on the StartNow program. The StartNow online platform helps aspiring entrepreneurs to build their business plans within 8 weeks. The program blends online-offline experiences as the entrepreneurs will be accompanied by weekly mentoring sessions.
