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.
