“Knowledge is just information, experience is real learning.” — SOHO_Africa

Tweeted in passing by Soho_Africa, the above sentiment is underlying but central to the inaugural Student Entrepreneurship Week Ghana.

The event, originally planned for 3 days, was incidentally scheduled into 2 days of power-packed thought leadership, inspiration, networking and insightful conversations at the British Council Accra! Sponsored by Kwese TV and Kempinski Hotel, over 400 guests convened at the alternative education forum, bringing together some of the brightest trainers and entrepreneurs from Ghana, Nigeria, Silicon Valley, and the U.K.

There were exciting discussions on themes like the future of work, business development, technology, fundraising, education & skills, media and so on.

#SEWGH also witnessed the launch of Young Money Business Pitch. The three winners — Uni-Connect (1st position), AppGharage (2nd position), and HealthOnline (3rd position) — are getting 6 months of business development & market opportunity support valued at over $3k (inclusive of a complimentary c-suite website & 1 year hosting for the winner), an opportunity to join MEST Africa training program in 2019 and an access to SFAN’s network of investors.

Here are some HD image highlights from keynote sessions, panel discussions, training sessions, pitches, and other segments of the incredible event.
