Coalition for Positive Impact

Brief description of project:

Igniting Dreams (ID) is an entrepreneurship development program that provides business development training, mentorship, and seed funding for young entrepreneurs in Northern Ghana. These resources help them acquire the required leadership skills and the funding needed to launch, sustain, and scale their businesses. Our goal within the next decade is to enable 10,000 young entrepreneurs to start their own businesses and create 1 million decent jobs across Ghana.

How other people/organizations can collaborate with us?

To achieve this ambitious goal, we need to extend this program across Northern Ghana and eventually scale it to all 16 regions of the Country. This expansion would require partnerships with corporate organizations, academia, governments, and the formal private sector. Igniting Dreams will benefit from volunteer industry coaches and mentors who have the required qualifications and experience to provide value to our young entrepreneurs. Finally, we will require $10 million in funding from organizations and individuals to enable us to provide our young entrepreneurs with all the resources they need to succeed.
