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.
Following the success of Season’s 1 McDan Incubator, the Top 10 Finalists have been placed with Mentors to provide regular checkins and support in the month leading up to the Finale.
Committed to supporting the 10 startups, the Mentors are some of our Incubator Facilitators and equally important, impartial and not part of the final decision making process that will determine the winner.
McDan Judge, Simon R Turner commented “As well as supporting the Mentors in the lead up to the Finale, we hope that the entrepreneurs – most who have not had a mentor or received mentorship in the past – will recognise their value and look to cementing Mentors well beyond the show.”
We’d like to thank the Mentors to continue to support Ghana’s future leaders and captains of industry.
