The event gave graduating companies the opportunity to showcase their technology and products in an on-site exhibition. It also featured a spoken-word interlude by Apiorkor Ashong and a soul-stirring rerun of a video cataloguing the entire journey of the grant winners their projects and the impact of the support on their businesses.
In a panel discussion with the top 5 businesses, entrepreneurs expressed joyful gratitude to the organisers for the training and support received throughout the 10 months of incubation and encouraged other entrepreneurs to take advantage of the opportunity for future cohorts.
Further on the list was the most significant event – the award of certificates, which was done in a no-contact style. Business leads attending in-person received their certificates from Mrs Mansa Nettey, Her Excellency Harriet Thompson, Mrs Elsie Addo Awadzi, and Mr Patrick Awuah, with the grant winners receiving additional cheques of GHC 57,000 each.
Overall, the programme was a huge success with regard to execution and patronage, especially during a global pandemic.
