Event Details

 

 

BarCamp Accra 2014 is a free networking event to bring people together for a day of discussion, demos and dialogue about Accra, Ghana and beyond. The event shall be held on December 20 at Meltwater Entrepreneurial School of Technology. The theme is also “Expanding Excellent Entreprises”. This Barcamp event will be the 42nd organized by the GhanaThink Foundation, as part of its Barcamp Ghana program which is building a network of change makers, doers and entrepreneurs.

GhanaThink celebrates its 10th anniversary this year. Over the 6 years of Barcamps in Ghana, we've championed 'starting up'. We've seen the creation of many Ghanaian-owned entreprises. Now, we need to see these entreprises grow.
At Barcamp Accra, we will discuss, in interactive sessions, what some Ghanaian entreprises are doing well and how they can expand. We'll cap off the day with breakout sessions.

There will also be the popular
speed mentoring sessions with many inspirational people. Confirmed mentors include Bridget Otoo (TV3), Rosy Fynn (Surfline), Anima Misa (Sapphire Productions), Gifty Bingley (Tigo), Afua Ankomah (Grameen Foundation), Stephanie Aboagye (EY), Tanko Mohammed (GNFoods), Samues Moses Agyemang (MediaPop), Inna Patty (MissGhana), Christabel Dadzie (Ahaspora), Alex Bram (SMS GH), Selorm Branttie (mPedigree), Anita Erskine (Viasat1), Nana Yaw Asiedu (Oxford & Beaumont), Caroline Sampson (YFM), Raja Owusu Ansah (Republic), Regina Agyare (TechNeedsGirls), Hamdiya Ismaila (Venture Capital Ghana), Franklin Cudjoe (IMANI Ghana), Esi Ansah (Axis HCL), Elizabeth Hazel (Newmont), Beryl Agyekum (Echo Haus), Jeanne Clark (US Embassy), Akua Nyame-Mensah (Lamudi), Nicole Amartefio (An African City), Abigail Larbi (MFWA), Tetteh Odjidja (Tema Doctor), Cwesi Oteng (Musician), Ian Jazz Musician), etc.
