Mobile Business Clinic (MBC) Africa, in collaboration with the Ambassador of the Netherlands to Ghana, Ron Strikker, is hosting its maiden Start-Up Investor Conference on Thursday, 19th October 2017, at Alisa Hotel in Accra.

The one-day conference under the theme: “The Government’s role in building the right ecosystem for start-ups and early-stage businesses in Ghana”, brings together startups/SMEs, (impact) investors, business partners, and government policymakers under one roof to dialogue and find solutions to support the ecosystem as well as networking.

The main objective of the conference is to help entrepreneurs to secure investments for their businesses and to generate deal flow for investors. Alongside, the conference will engage policymakers, entrepreneurs and investors in discussions on how the startup and business climate, in particular, access to finance for early-stage startups in Ghana can be improved further.

Speaking about the conference, the Executive Director of MBC Africa, Tenemba Anna Samake said, “although the ecosystem in Ghana is made up of an increasing number of accelerators and incubators, investors are still having difficulties in finding good pipeline deals. “At MBC Africa, we want to facilitate the communication between all stakeholders in the ecosystem, including the Government, to build sustainable models for start-up and early-stage businesses. The Start-up Investor Conference will play a key role in contributing to build the appropriate environment for that needed communication and solutions in the ecosystem”, Anna reiterated.
