BarCamp Kasoa 2013 is a free networking event to bring people together for a day of discussion, demos and dialogue about Kasoa, Ghana and beyond. The event will happen at the ICGC Transformation Temple in Kasoa on April 27, 2013. The theme is 'Making an entreprising environment for an emerging market'. Barcamp Kasoa is organized primarily by the GhanaThink Foundation, an NGO based both in Ghana and the USA, which has successfully organized 19 BarCamps in Ghana.
Barcamp Kasoa aims to assemble Kasoa stakeholders to network, build a supportive entreprising community and give birth to lasting professional partnerships. We would discuss the present state of Kasoa, its emerging growth and how it will be affected by many projects happening around it - Hope City, West Hills Mall, Millenium City, etc. We would also discuss how Kasoa and its surrounding areas can be positively affected by youth.
Some winners of the Ghana National Youth Achievers Awardswill join other young achievers to participate in our speed mentoring session. Confirmed speed mentors include Bernard Akoi Jackson, Jerry Smith, Sam Paul, Akua Akyaa Nkrumah, Kate Nkansah-Dwamena, Gideon Commey, etc. We shall have a special panel discussing Kasoa. This shall include the insight of local Kasoa stakeholders. Confirmed panelists include Nuhu Nuhu Adams, Lawrencia Owusu, etc. It will also feature multiple user-generated breakout sessions on topics relevant to Kasoa and beyond. Major topics to focus on will include keeping Kasoa clean, urban planning and traffic as well as growing small and medium-sized business.
