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.
GrowthAfrica has been in the enterprise development space from 2012 and the sector agnostic programme allows for the sharing of a wealth of knowledge and insights from West Africa.
Our team based in Accra, is powered and ready to equip entrepreneurs joining the acceleration programme with intensive activities that raise global solutions suited to the local context.
We believe in the power of Ghana's entrepreneurs and we continue to grow and expand our resources to serve more entrepreneurs; sharing valuable lessons we gather as a great resource.
