The event, which is scheduled to take place on Saturday, November 1 at the Oak Plaza Hotel, will bring together business executives, startups, entrepreneurs, SME’s, youth and individuals with business ideas.
Participants at the clinic are expected to benefit from the rich experience of distinguished speakers and facilitators including Charles Mensa, Executive Director at The Trust Consult; John Armah, Executive Director GCEEI; and Maximus Ametogor, CEO of Pop Out.
Speaking to journalists, John Armah of the GCEEI noted that startup companies and young people with brilliant ideas in Ghana often pay so much for others to develop a business plan. However, most of those plans are not actualised due to lack of funding and potential wastage at inception.
“For your business to take off on a sound financial footing, you need to save every pesewa that you can. So we are providing a platform where we can train people to develop their own business plan. Through the Business clinic, people will also understand the rubrics of how to secure investments/capital injection and make decisions on the right technology to use for supporting their operations,” he said.
The main speaker for the clinic, Mr. Mensa, is an accomplished accountant and investment professional.
He is a graduate of Harvard University and the Manchester Business School, UK. Charles is the former Director of Finance and Administration at the NLA, where he grew the business from US$15million per year to a US$160million dollar business within a period of 5 years. He also worked with Multimedia Broadcasting Company as Finance Director, and sits on the board of Windsor Capital.
According to Mr. Mensa “The GCEEI Business Clinic is a total Business Support Package for One Day. “I encourage all businesses and individuals not to miss this opportunity,” he concluded.
