He also indicated that when the programme ends, “the best innovations from the cohort of students-entrepreneurs will be exhibited” at a grand event.

Earlier, the Dean of UGBS, Prof. Justice Bawole, explained that the programme was important as it would “consolidate conversations around how to get young people to think differently and create jobs themselves”

As part of the launch, there was a panel discussion that featured six young business owners on keys to developing ideas that can become viable businesses. Tha panel members were Dr George Acheampong, UGBS; Kevin Blankson, SWoove; Hillary Adare, Wonfliki; Worlaenam Sika, Sikaba; Deborah A.N. Nyarko-Mensah and Dr Kelechi Ofoegbu, both of Impact Hub, Accra.

After the event, facilitators of the project, including Prof. Felix Ankomah Asante and Prof Elsie Effa Kaufmann of the Department of Biomedical Engineering, toured the UGBS NEST.

Some University officials present at the event included Rev. Dr Mrs Bridget Ben-Naimah, Director of Careers and Counselling Centre and Prof David Dodoo-Arhin, Department of Materials Science and Engineering.

Representatives from the Impact Hub, Accra and Imperial College London also joined the event virtually.
