April 11, 2016

Across the world, outstanding stories are told of both the young and old becoming more innovative in delivering competitive solutions to the problems that the world faces daily. From the Mark Zuckerbergs of United States of America to the Aliko Dangotes of Nigeria, the exploits of individuals in business are shaping the world and transforming economies.

Here in Ghana, the story isn’t different. Young people are becoming more passionate and innovative, increasing the rate at which ideas are being commercialized into startup companies that are creating myriad opportunities, combating youth unemployment, bridging the skills gap and contributing their significant quota to the transformation of the economy of Ghana and Africa at large. Even more exciting is the global competitiveness of these ideas and startups regardless of the daunting challenges and obstacles faced in their development.

Shortlisted from a comprehensive list of several groundbreaking and high growth startups by Ghanaians; these 100 startups have become or are on their way to becoming market leaders in their respective industries. Aiming to be globally competitive, these startups are leaving no stone unturned in the pursuit of their vision. These are definitely the 100 Must Watch Globally Competitive Startups in Ghana from several sectors including but not limited to Agriculture, Finance & Investments, Fashion, Technology, Media, Entertainment, Manufacturing, Health, Education, Retail and e-Commerce, Energy and Social Enterprise.

The African Network of Entrepreneurs (TANOE), an award winning Social Enterprise in partnership with Avance Media conducted a compelling research which received numerous public nominations leading to the creation of this 100 Globally Competitive Startups List being published ahead of TANOE’s Ghana Startup Awards which will also witness the official induction of Ghanaian Startups into the first cohort of the Ghana Startups Club 100.

In a conversation with Ekow Mensah, CEO of The African Network of Entrepreneurs (TANOE), he stated that more and more high-impact startups are flourishing in Ghana – young companies that innovate, solve hard problems, grow fast, create jobs and put Ghana on the world economic map. He emphasized that these companies deserve recognition and support from all of us as they hold the keys to solving the most pertinent socio-economic challenges faced in Ghana and Africa at large.

He said; “this 100 list is a definitive countdown to Ghana’s most innovative, inspiring and ground-breaking new companies. Some of the 100 are names or brands you will recognize for their phenomenal success stories and others you will be less familiar with but are making tremendous impact in their chosen sectors. Some of the companies on the list have existed for over 5 years and may currently not be Startups in nature; our decision to include them was based on their outstanding performance and tremendous growth serving as a source of inspiration and authentic case studies. Others are barely a year old but hold tremendous growth prospects.  We look forward to inducting as many of them as possible into the Ghana Startups Club 100 at the upcoming TANOE Ghana Startup Awards later in the year.” He concluded.

Media Partners include; Joy Business and Business Day Ghana Newspaper
