Background

The Social entrepreneurship for sustainable development in Sub-Saharan Africa: Lessons learnt from business incubation in Cameroon, Burkina Faso, and Ghana is a research project implemented by the Nkafu Policy Institute with funding from the International Development Research Centre (IDRC). The project spans a period of two (2) years covering Cameroon, Burkina Faso, and Ghana and Innohub is the representative for Ghana.

The Inception Workshop

The Inception Workshop for the research project is expected to take place on 23rd April 2021. This workshop will kick-start the two year activities in Ghana which will complement the activities that will be simultaneously carried out in Burkina Faso and Cameroon. Expected attendees include representatives of business incubator and accelerator hubs, development institutions, government institutions, funding organizations, and policy advocates.
