GrowthAfrica in Ghana

GrowthAfrica's entry into Ghana for strategic entrepreneurship support

In 2019, Africa’s premier business growth partner, GrowthAfrica, expanded into West Africa by launching into Accra, Ghana. Its 6th African region running in-country business acceleration activities.

The launch into Ghana was marked by an open call for applications to the GrowthAfrica Accelerator programme which brings together ambitious and committed entrepreneurs from Kenya, Uganda, Ethiopia, Zambia, and Ghana.

The programme presented a first-time opportunity for growth stage, post-revenue entrepreneurs in Ghana to access resources and support necessary to scale.

Stories from GrowthAfrica in Ghana

Hatua Tech: actioning excellence in the African tech landscape

As a true son of the Pan-African spirit of entrepreneurship, Nehemiah Attigah founded Hatua Tech officially in 2011, having acquired a substantial amount of work experience in South Africa, Nigeria, Ghana, and The Gambia.

Inspired by the Swahili language and the East African technology landscape, Nehemiah chose a name for his business that would always keep him accountable: Hatua, which means “Action” or “Steps.”

Bringing world-class healthcare to Africa, one product at a time

Isabella “Naana” Asante spent over 25 years working as a nurse in New York where she understood best practices in healthcare.

As a Ghanaian living in the United States, she had a desire to bring back the knowledge she spent years acquiring and as early as 2005, the wheels of innovation were turning and she had had an idea of creating a homecare agency for Ghana’s aging population and patients with chronic illnesses that would need specialised care.
