Last Chance to Apply for Season 2 of the McDan Entrepreneurship Challenge

by Simon R Turner

Calling all entrepreneurs in Ghana!

Following the recent Grand Finale of Season 1 of the McDan Entrepreneurship Challenge – which saw Alhassan Koligu Hamza walk away with $100,000 USD to build his shea butter business in the North Eastern Region, as part of the 1.1 million GHS ($205,000 USD) in prizes in total given to our Top 10 Finalists – there’s just a few days left for entrepreneurs to apply for Season 2.

We’ve extended the deadline a little to take account of some exciting innovations happening in Ghana to address Covid19 and other startups who don’t want to miss out on this huge opportunity.

Coming soon to TV in Ghana, Season 2 will see Dr Daniel McKorley lead his jury, which includes our new judge, Dzigbordi, together with Percy Amoo-Yankey and myself.

You have until 11.59pm on Wed 8 April 2020 to apply.

Hear more from Season 1 champion Hamza and find out how to apply for Season 2:

Good luck!

The Hustle is Real!
