Last week Orange Corners Ghana proudly celebrated the graduation of 100+ remarkable youth-led businesses that successfully completed the six-month acceleration programme. The graduation ceremony, held at the Netherlands Embassy in Accra, marked the conclusion of cohort 7. Between January and June 2023, Orange Corners Ghana provided support to 350+ talented innovators from across the country. Participants from Accra, Kumasi, Ho, Takoradi and Tamale received expert training, coaching, masterclasses as well as access to facilities, networks and finance to foster the growth of their enterprises. And over 100 of them are now on track to apply for the Orange Corners Innovation Fund – the programme’s allocated funding.
During the ceremony NL ambassador to Ghana Jeroen Verheul extended warm congratulations to the participants of cohort 7, recognising their hard work and determination. The ambassador also expressed recognition for the remarkable achievements of the Orange Corners Ghana acceleration programme. Furthermore, he highlighted the contribution of programme’s private partners and enthusiastically welcomed Koudijs and Cargill Ghana, who joined as new partners for Orange Corners Ghana this cohort.
