Somewhere in the year 2020, Kumasi Hive held its Local Consultative Stakeholders engagement themed around “Web Development”.
And this year was no different and had all stakeholders within the Digital Media space come on board to share their ideas on an inclusive system to help businesses within the ecosystem thrive.
The Local Stakeholders Consultative meeting commenced right after the Ecosystem mapping; an activity to map organizations across the region and find out how their outfits assist and support startup growth.
The event which was held on the 23rd of April 2021 at Kumasi Hive had a massive attendance from people from the 6 pillars identified as Accessible Market, Media, Women, and Culture, Finance, Support, Government Policy and Regulations, and Human Capital.
The theme for the event was “The Role of Digital Media in Transforming the Local Economy for Job Creation and Economic Development”.
Panel Discussion ongoing.
The Keynote speaker Mr. Kofi Owusu, the Project Lead for PM 24, stated emphatically that Digital Media has come to stay and that the youth should embrace it and let make good use of it.
He emphasized that he is excited that Kumasi Hive is doing something like this to equip young people in Digital Media. He entreated the Government to support initiatives like this so we can have a lot of youth have a skill they can start businesses with.
