What Happened Over the Course of the Week
In Ghana our vessel ported in two locations – first in the port town of Takoradi in the western portion of the country and two days later in Tema, outside the capital city of Accra. While it was one of the least developed nations we visited on our voyage, Ghana proved to be ripe with opportunities; Ghana’s market has big potential for many of our founders’ products. Further, the newly launched Hub Accra welcomed us for their opening event, the first official unveiling of the new space coordinated by the Open University of West Africa.
