This is an exclusive list of high-performing entrepreneurs and businesses that are powering up the economic and entrepreneurial landscape of Dansoman and its environs.
Dansoman; founded in the late 1960s was once the single largest planned urban settlement of its kind in Ecowas Sub-Region. Currently a suburban town in the Greater Accra Region of Ghana, Dansoman is well known for its numerous Junior and Senior High Schools and Churches but not its vibrant economic and business activities. A home to an overwhelming number of youths with innovative ideas and thriving businesses, Dansoman is indeed a place to watch as an active contributor to the dynamic private sector growth in Ghana.
