He said “The GCIC works to improve technologies and products, whilst stimulating climate risk mitigation and improving management practices. We also invested in ensuring that our cohorts grow climate resilient businesses”. He went on to say, “Our grants are available after application and involve the submission of evidence of the efficient and effective utilization of the awarded funds”.
Daniel Ababio, Senior Manager at EY Ghana (GCIC ‘s implementation partners for the Global Affairs Canada supported program) explained the Monitoring and Evaluation process implemented by EY to help track the growth of businesses to the Inductees during their time in the incubator.
“We look forward to sharing your success stories during and at the end of the program”. He said.
Each year, at the end of the induction ceremony, the cohorts are presented with asparagus fern potted plants to nurture and maintain as a metaphorical reminder of the dedication they will need to cultivate in order to grow their businesses during and after the business incubation period.
