Innovate Ghana is set to host the 6th
edition of the annual Innovate Ghana Final Pitch and Awards Ceremony this Friday, 9th of August 2019, at 4pm at Impact Hub, Accra.

Proudly powered by Gremkay International and supported by the National Society of Black Engineers (NSBE), University of Ghana and Junior Camp Ghana, Innovate Ghana is a design
competition that allows Ghanaian high school students to apply their existing knowledge to solve developmental problems of today.

The goal is to inspire innovation among students through competition, hands-on workshops spanning topics from human-centered design to business model development, interactive sessions, market-research-oriented community trips and lead sessions.

With the lead sessions, students are exposed to the work of key personalities in STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics) in Ghana and further opportunities for them to get engaged in these fields.

This year’s competition ran from the 1st of August to 8th August, with the final pitch and awards ceremony slated for today, 9th August 2019.

At today’s ceremony, participants will present their ideas, complete with business models and prototypes to a panel of judges. The winning team will receive seed funding for project implementation.

Some expected guests for today’s event include Emily Sheldon (African Health Innovation Centre), Ato Ulzen-Appiah (Ghana Think Foundation) and Sam Amamu (Kosmos Energy).

This event is free and open to the public hence interested persons can partake in it without any charge. For further enquiries kindly contact Brian Fleischer at brianf2@stanford.edu or Kwadwo Agyarko at agyarkokwadwo@gmail.com.
