The Richard Quaye foundation honors its promise of free seed capital to 10 lucky entrepreneurs
It was all joy as 10 entrepreneurs boldly and with all smiles walked away with GH₵25,000 cedis each from the Richard Quaye foundation free seed capital challenge.
After weeks of going through over 1200 entries, 40 candidates were selected and screened to 17 finalists of which 10 winners emerged. The 10 winners were from diverse industries from food processing to software development, farms, eater on wheels to fashion, plastic waste recycling, to technology among others.
Winners on the 21st gathered at the Quick Angels premises and had a round table discussion with the founder and CEO of Quick Angels Limited and the man behind the Richard Quaye Foundation Initiative Mr. Richard Nii Armah Quaye.
He interacted with the 10 winners on the essence of the seed capital and advised them on financial management and discipline as some of the major keys in winning the entrepreneurship journey.
The winners were full praise for this gesture.
They asked for periodic mentorship which was granted to them as per an open-door policy for all.
The winners took turns taking their cash cheques. There was a lot to eat and drink and network. Richard Quaye Foundation is an established Social Responsibility foundation incorporated on 7th February 2020.
