Challenges Worldwide Ghana in collaboration with Women in Debate, University of Ghana will organise the first ever ‘WomENtrepreneur Conference’ 2017 on Saturday, the 6th May, 2017 at the Centre for African Wetlands auditorium, University of Ghana from 10:00 to 14:00.

This event is supported by EQWIP HUBS and African Internship Academy (AIA). The former is a Canadian based NGO specialized in relevant skills training for young people while the latter trains and provides internship opportunities for the youth.

The day will bring together highly motivated, aspiring female entrepreneurs, within and outside the university, to learn from successful business women such as Dr. Esi Ansah (Lecturer, Ashesi University and Owner of Axis Human Capital), Ms Farida Bedwei (a software engineer who is the Co-founder and Chief Technology Officer of Logiciel Ghana Ltd), Ms Abena Brigidi (Investment expert and Entrepreneur, Founder of Nimed Capital), Ms Priscillia Holdbrook (Founder of Get it Right Coaching Services) and Ms. Yaa Sarfoa Ayisi (Lawyer/Entrepreneur, Owner of Peini Company Limited). The stage will also be graced by Ms Esinam Seade (SRC President, University of Ghana and CEO of Essydel Events) and other well accomplished women business owners such as Elizabeth Okoro and Narkie Agettor.

With the country’s increasing focus on developing entrepreneurship, this conference seeks to provide the needed basic knowledge for all aspiring female entrepreneurs. The platform will provide participants information on business methods allowing them to learn how to identify the right business ideas, create their first business plan canvas, how to launch their businesses, build the right image or brand for it and how to overcome challenges and failure. These topics will be handled in three different sessions during the day; Plenary, Break-out and Panel discussion sessions. These different approaches are to allow for ample participation and interaction between Speakers and participants.

Entrepreneurs are at the core of economic growth, as increasingly, entrepreneurship is playing a critical role in economic development. Ghana’s increased interest in entrepreneurship is held in the fact that our economy mainly depends on the growth of small and medium scale enterprises. All available data shows the impact of entrepreneurship on the economy and therefore an urgent need to collaborate all efforts synergistically to build strong and resilient business owners by preparing them for the hurdles ahead. It is therefore expedient for aspiring entrepreneurs to develop themselves adequately through events such as the WomENtrepreneur Conference 2017.

Challenges Worldwide recognises the potential of increasing the number of women entrepreneurs and their capacity to transform the country through entrepreneurship and seeks to use this opportunity to provide relevant entrepreneurial information to upcoming start-ups.

We invite all highly motivated, aspiring female entrepreneurs within the University of Ghana, all other Universities within the city as well as the general youth to be present at this crucial conference to ignite their entrepreneurial flame.
