The Centre will in many ways rekindle a new entrepreneurial spirit in Ghana’s youth and will adopt innovative means to solve some of the greatest challenges facing the country.
Under the theme: “Investing in Ghana’s future, one entrepreneur at a time” KIC promises a well oiled, thoroughly coordinated programme that will positively affect each sector of the country’s economy.
At a simple yet grand launch at the Movenpick Hotel in Accra, Wednesday, the Country Director of Kosmos Mr Joe Mensah said the programme follows the “contrarian thinking and entrepreneurial spirit” that helped Kosmos to get to where it is today.
The only difference, he noted was that KIC will be the “angel investor who supports someone else’s dream. And in the process hope to play a role in solving some of Ghana’s most pressing developmental challenges.”
How will this dream manifest?
Mr Mensah said the KIC will use innovation and apply commercial solutions to Ghana’s existing social and economic challenges by using market based approach that facilitates private sector enterprise and entrepreneurship.
“This initiative is a marked departure from the traditional approach to corporate social responsibility,” he said.
