Entrepreneurs from 85 countries across the world will meet in Ghana for this year’s Global 28 Credentials of Entrepreneur (28CEO) Summit.
The summit has been scheduled to take place between November 3rd and 6th in Accra.
Speaking during the launch of the summit in Ghana on Friday, the West African representative of 28 Credentials of Entrepreneurs, Dr. Victoria Esinu Vitashie stated that the platform provides an avenue for networking for young entrepreneurs.
She described the 28COE as a dynamic organization that is supported through partnerships in the global community.
According to her, the platform provides an avenue for networking, branding, and leveraging, in the interest of businesses.
“28COE works to make a healthier start that creates more entrepreneurs, educate individuals, accelerates innovation and strengthens economic growth, and create ecosystems that lead to cross-border collaboration and initiatives between investors, policymakers, researchers, and entrepreneurial support organization,” she said.
Meanwhile, the lack of strong equity laws has been identified as a challenge for Entrepreneurs in Africa.
According to the chairman of Kludjeson International Limited, Dr. Prince Kofi Kludjeson, the challenge was particularly pressing on entrepreneurs in Ghana.
He said that this has hindered the potential of many entrepreneurs in the country to reach their target.
“We need to have a conversation around what type of equity arrangement works for us and then we can take advantage of it to develop our country,” he said.
He thereby described the summit as an avenue for Entrepreneurs to hone their skills.
