Our Engagement Programs

Funding Ghana Graduates: TEN Ghana is partnering with Funding Ghana Graduates (FGG). This is a separate initiative to raise capital through a high profile crowd sourcing website. Funds will be applied to approved projects submitted by graduates and undergraduates. TEN Ghana and FGG will work closely to develop networks of public and private donors for the FGG program, and for other youth programs.

Pitch Competitions: To identify and support start-ups on campuses which are on the cutting edge of innovation.

Mentorship: The central program of TEN Ghana. At-risk tertiary students and their mentors participate in a structured program of support.

Conferences: To learn about entrepreneurship, businesses, and venture capital through speaker events, workshops and mixers.

Vacation Camps: A week long incubator camp to assist students with the development of start-ups, and to provide guidance on taking their projects to the next level. An open demonstration day will put students’ projects on display to the public to test their reactions and to receive other ideas.

Speaker Series: To bring industry leaders to talk in-depth about a wide variety of industries and issues, i.e. panels on e-commerce, bio-tech, political innovation, and women in entrepreneurship.

Cross-Campus Mixers: Housing informal meet-ups between TEN Ghana clubs across the various campuses to facilitate connections between like-minded and passionate individuals from different backgrounds.

Workshops and Coffee Chats: To bring together a variety of industry leaders to teach skills or chat informally with students about start-ups.

Dissemination of information on TEN Ghana programs and events will be communicated via monthly newsletters, Facebook and Twitter. TEN Ghana will reach out to the broader community to gain their support for the youth of Ghana.
