Overall Objectives

Develop strategic relationships through entrepreneurship, business-to-business (B2B) network outreach, training and empowerment.

The Summit is a momentous forum designed to empower and help build networks among women SMEs from various ethnic backgrounds in Ghana and the West African Region. The two (2) day event will comprise of Paneled discussions and technical sessions for women led businesses.

We plan to host over 500 women during the two (2) day event. In addition, we have partnered with Border Nation, a New York City media agency and Voice of America to broadcast the Summit overseas, which considerably extends the reach, geographical and demographic scope of the Summit. Our media partners boast of a combined following of more than 5,000,000 people in social media and other platforms, where we intend to market the Summit. Key local media have also been put on alert to cover and convey the summit’s messages to the larger Ghanaian public and beyond.

The AWR September summit therefore provides you an opportunity to reach an audience of women from various socio-economic backgrounds, most of whom are known to constitute the key purchasing power within the various family units in their communities. The summit particularly provides an increased visibility and reach of your institution and ministry to women of Africa; a growing and increasingly financially mobile demographic through our marketing activities. We look forward to partnering with you to empower “womentrepreneurs” in Ghana and their cohorts from the region attending this Summit.
