So Ghana’s Ministry of Trade and Industry and Google Ghana recently launched a new initiative called Innovation Ghana. Innovation Ghana is meant “to celebrate our homegrown innovators and discuss what is needed to bring Ghana to the fore of innovation and entrepreneurship.”
Today, the first batch of heroes were awarded: Ghana Decides (woopie – now I can update my capstone paper accordingly!), Ganyobi Naa, Dream Oval Ghana Limited, and LetiGames. I came across some videos of the awardees and was too inspired not to share. If ever someone tells you that Ghana or Africa has no hope, kindly refer them to this post. To our heroes, you do us proud. More vim!
