Impact Hub New Economy Booster program 2020 For Impact Driven Entreprenuers

Come shape the post-COVID-19 economic recovery of Ghana or Nigeria. The New Economy Booster program is a chance to do so! 

Our goal is to boost high potential solutions or ventures that are already in the market or ready to go-to-market and are creating a positive impact on challenges faced by key sectors in the Ghanaian and Nigerian economies. 

This is an opportunity to bring ventures to the next level, advance business skills, receive expert advice, and nourish potential investor relationships. This program has been created by Impact Hub in partnership with the lab of tomorrow and with the support of The German Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development (BMZ). 

The New Economy Booster is designed to support impact-driven entrepreneurs with both advanced and early-stage ventures, startups, non-profit organizations or initiatives based in Ghana and Nigeria that are contributing to the country’s post-pandemic economic recovery.

We want to boost solutions or ventures in sectors that have been affected by COVID-19, particularly those that are at risk of or have experienced job losses. 

In our seven-month tailor-made online program, successful candidates will get a range of customized content and resources to develop and grow their business and network while being guided by a team of local and global experts.
