McDan Entrepreneurship Challenge

McDan Entrepreneurship Challenge

The McDan Entrepreneurship Challenge is more than just a reality TV show. It is part of our ecosystem that seeks to uncover and incubate the best new Ghanaian entrepreneurs and businesses.

As well as awarding prize money of USD $100,000 to budding entrepreneurs that provide solutions to challenges facing Ghana and indeed Africa today, the Top 20 “All Stars” get to be part of an exclusive network, be part of the McDan Incubator and receive ongoing rewards and opportunities.

There may be only one winner, but there’s so many opportunities to so many contestants.
