Barcamp Ghana 2011
Saturday, December 17, 2011 from 8:00 AM to 6:00 PM (WET)
The BarCamp Ghana team has successfully organized 10 BarCamps in Accra, Kumasi, Takoradi, Cape Coast, Tamale and Ho, resulting in a network of Ghanaian doers, entrepreneurs and change makers. Barcamp Ghana 2011 will be organized by the GhanaThink Foundation, a youth-led Ghana and US-based NGO. Like all Barcamps, there will be user-generated sessions and discussions where attendees get to set the agenda and topics for the day. BarCamp Ghana 2011 will feature a speed mentoring session with mentors like Bernard Avle, Samuel Jonathan, Albert Ocran, Sheila Bartels-Sam, Lionel Dosoo, Leila Djansi, Carl Ashie, Kofi Dadzie, Alex Adjei-Bram, Nana Awere Damoah, Sefakor Gbewonyo, Alfred Cran-Mensah, amongst others.
Through this event, we seek to highlight the importance of appropriate partnerships and corporate engagements in ensuring the success of projects, spurring wealth creation and economic growth. Most prospective project managers and social innovators lack the know-how to establish partnerships with pivotal stakeholders such as public regulation bodies, state revenue authorities, financial institutions, and the media. Without these crucial linkages, many promising projects meet their early demise to the detriment of our nation as a whole. BarCamp Ghana 2011 is geared towards helping to reverse this trend.
Register/RSVP today at the BarCamp Ghana eventbrite website. You may also contact the BarCamp Ghana team for sponsorship opportunities. If you are interested in organizing a breakout session, let us know, especially if you have special needs.
