Home to one of Africa’s most robust entrepreneurial ecosystems, Ghana presented the perfect landscape for Impact Hub New York Metropolitan Area’s first innovation tour. This unparalleled hands-on opportunity allowed our guests to learn, network, taste, invest and experience Ghana. Visitors got a unique look into how Ghana approaches sustainability and inclusive development from all angles.
The week long program offered 25 public stakeholders, investors, and entrepreneurs a stay in the beautiful neighborhood of Osu, Accra. The group attended exclusive meetings with Ghana-based innovators and special visits of cultural sites. Key tour highlights include: round table discussions on urban and social experiments in the city of Accra, a visit to the Mayor’s Office, a meeting with the Coastal Development Authority to learn about the city’s plan for rising waters, fireside chats with the African Health Innovation Center for a deep dive in Ghana’s health landscape, a session on Investing in Ghana, and visits to a variety of universities, creative studios and much more.
