WomanRising in partnership with Ghana Tech Lab organised a Business Pitch competition for young entrepreneurs to come up with brilliant ideas. The event happened on Thursday, January 13th 2022 at the Emi – Luxe Center at East -Legon.
The Local Startup Summit aims to promote and celebrate the startup culture within the local ecosystem and also to encourage entrepreneurship among the youth. It also provides a platform for startup founders to pitch their innovative ideas to local investors, business leaders and the local community.
Two teams made up of intelligent young girls presented their business ideas. The first team “Olayspaces” presented a brilliant idea about how to solve the issues with finding the right event space for your wedding, party etc. The second team “Flash” presented a brilliant idea about how to make it easier for vendors to find dispatch riders to deliver their goods.
After careful deliberation by the judges, OlaySpaces were adjudged the winners of the competition.
The Business Pitch was an opportunity for these trainees to present their solutions to challenges identified and to encourage the execution of these projects for sustainable development and job creation.
Consequently, the mobile application industry has experienced graceful periods in providing sustainable solutions in Ghana. We believe these solutions should be extended to everyone in our communities who have needs and wants of which these apps can solve.
