Entrepreneurs are key to driving sustainable economic growth, as well as creating job opportunities.
This is the bold ambition of the Orange Corners programme.
This is an initiative of the Kingdom of the Netherlands in collaboration with MDF West Africa, the Ghana Innovation Hub and the private sector partners Fidelity Bank, Emergent Payments, Friesland Campina, Vivo Energy Ghana and Meridian Port Services (MPS).
A total of 343 entrepreneurs spread across five regions in Ghana have been selected as part of the seventh cohort for the Orange Corners (OC) Ghana Acceleration Programme.
After the nationwide callout for applications in November 2022, 431 applications were received and screened for slots in the programme. For the seventh cohort, which officially began on 24th January 2023, 166 entrepreneurs will be trained in Accra, 59 in Kumasi, 41 in Tamale, 36 in Ho and 41 in Takoradi.
The ambitious entrepreneurs will be equipped with the necessary knowledge, skills, access to markets and capital.
The Orange Corners Ghana programme is a 6-month acceleration programme with 10 workshop days, several (online) masterclasses and individual coaching sessions.
OC Ghana also serves as a bridge between these innovative entrepreneurs and the private sector, while facilitating access to finance through our Orange Corners Innovation Fund. This offers a great benefit to all partners involved.
Moreover, Orange Corners Ghana is proud to announce that the programme has received additional private sector support from De Heus Koudijs and Cargill, raising the institutional support from five to seven companies.
