BarCamp Ghana Goes to Ashesi

BarCamp Ghana, the unconference that's been inspiring entrepreneurship and innovation among Ghana's youth, will be held at Accra's Ashesi University this Saturday, 18th December, 2010.

This year's event comes off after successful regional BarCamps at Kumasi, Accra and Takoradi. The day's deliberations will be under the theme "Create dreams, work smart and shape the future." BarCamp Ghana therefore puts together all the positive discussions on youth entrepreneurship and innovation we've been having since September.

Ashesi promises to be a fitting host for BarCamp Ghana as they're focused on raising entrepreneurial leaders of the highest quality for Africa and the world. Ashesi are ardent BarCamp champions- they've demonstrated this through active involvement of their students and faculty, and by sponsoring the event.

The structure of this year's BarCamp Ghana takes a break from previous years' format, with more emphasis on breakout sessions, to unleash the true BarCamp experience. Resource persons have been drawn from across industry segments to enrich the discussions. They include Bernard Avle of CITI 97.3 FM, Leila Djansi of Turning Point Pictures, Oluniyi Ajao Solomon Adu-Atefoe of Agric Development Bank, Golda Addo of Energy Solutions Froundation, Mohamed Amin Adam of Publish What You Pay, Philip Gamey of Web & Software, DK Osseo-Asare of Anamcity, Paul Tenejou of ROI-MOB-Lang and Ronke Ampiah of Smiles for Christmas.
