This August aspiring entrepreneurs and creative minds will be taking over Afrilead Ideation Center in Tamale for the maiden event of KickStart48. The organizers and volunteers of at Afrilead have been working behind the scenes to ensure that this event provides not only inspiration, but also the resources required for building and launching viable businesses.
Local CEOs, founders, and startup veterans will be on hand to provide expertise and give talks on their experiences in the fast-paced world of technology startups. In other words, there will be knowledgeable and successful entrepreneurs in attendance to inspire, share and help the teams throughout the weekend. The final day teams will have the opportunity to pitch their business to a panel of judges where real prizes and services can be won.
KickStart48 is an intense 48-hour business design bootcamp for aspiring entrepreneurs who want to develop their idea into working startup business within one weekend. We start on Friday with pitching ideas and forming teams with only one goal in mind – to bring new startups into life by Sunday. Kickstart48 is being organized in cities and campuses across Ghana and is open to young entrepreneurs between the ages of 18 and 35 years. And our goal is simple; to generate long-term impact by empowering aspiring young local entrepreneurs with the tools and knowledge needed to create sustainable ventures.
Based in Tamale, Ghana – we are learning partners to aspiring entrepreneurs. We specialize in developing and deploying innovative learning solutions that support aspiring entrepreneurs to learn effectively so they can succeed faster. Our mission is to re-define how learning looks like for startup entrepreneurs in Africa because we believe startup entrepreneurs learn differently.
