Ghanaian Agribusiness Accelerator
The Ghanaian Agribusiness Accelerator is a program developed by Kosmos Energy in partnership with Uncharted. The program is focused on working with Ghanaian agribusinesses by providing capacity building training to help them scale their business and achieve sustainability.
This program will feature two 5-day bootcamps for local Ghanaian agribusinesses. The first, Business Model Validation, is designed to provide entrepreneurs with a step-by-step methodology to rapidly and systematically validate their venture’s business model. The second, Investment Preparedness, is designed to prepare entrepreneurs to raise funding.
We have an amazing team of partners! Kosmos Energy in Dallas, Texas, and Kosmos Innovation Center in Accra, Ghana are the true champions of this issue in Ghana and co-creators of this program. Our implementation partner is the Impact Hub Accra, whose team ran an Investment Preparedness Lab during our first cohort in 2015.
