Opening the IBA hub

IBA Hub Ghana offers a training of Business Advisors and runs programs for entrepreneurs in WASH (EnterWASH) and agribusiness (IAC Accelerator). 

The afternoon included short presentations on these various IBA activities and there was an exhibition of entrepreneurs and their products and services.
MDF's director Richard Yeboah mentioned that this Hub is a step toward more social impact through business in Ghana and invited possible partners for discussions. 

 

Ghana's landscape is changing, and by promoting inclusive business, we hope to strengthen the entrepreneurship climate. 


Upcoming activities that were presented are:

  • The next Training of Advisors, which will be held in Accra on July 17-19. This training will cover the Inclusive Business toolkit, and is open for all Business Advisors.  Joining this training will improve their offer to customers with innovative tools and expand their network, both online and offline, by joining IBA. 
  • The Inclusive Agribusiness Centre (IAC), which will start their Accelerator Programme in June. They will select 15 entrepreneurs for this 3-month programme.

Entrepreneurs can choose one of three tracks:

a) Access to market; with a focus on your customer and how to reach them

b) Access to finance; with a focus on preparing the right documents for a loan, grant or investment

c) Improving operational efficiency; with a focus on cost, revenue and optimizing margins.
