Ghana x Innovation – Accra, Ghana

Tuesday, August 9th – Sunday, August 14th

Calling all entrepreneurs, investors, academics, stakeholders, and others based in the NY Metro Area who are passionate about West Africa: join us for a once-in-a-lifetime innovation ecosystem tour of Accra, Ghana!


This 5-day in-person tour of Ghana is happening THIS AUGUST!

You’ll get a unique inside look at how Ghana is approaching sustainable and inclusive development from all angels. You’ll meet with leading entrepreneurs, public stakeholders, investors and creatives, explore collaborative and investment opportunities, and have an unforgettable cultural, food, and music experience. Together, we’ll exchange notes between ecosystems to learn and accelerate impact.

We believe now is the time to be a part of Africa’s rise.


This is a once in a lifetime opportunity to deep dive into Ghana’s innovation ecosystem. Set to be the fastest growth region of the 21st century, Africa is not to be overlooked by anyone interested in the social impact space. Impact Hub Accra was established as the the first publicly accessible innovation center in Ghana and has been building the innovation community in the region for the past 10 years. Today, Impact Hub Accra is a leading institution on the continent and is ready to share learnings and networks with our first cohort of New York Metropolitan Area participants, who are excited about the future of African entrepreneurship.
