The Ghana-India Consultative Chamber of Commerce has launched its knowledge bank initiative which aims to support young people with innovative business ideas.
According to GITAG President Dominic Oduro Antwi, the initiative is to train and financially support students with business ideas in all fields to create more opportunities.
This, he believes, will help fight unemployment in the country and promote economic growth and development.
He said students from all sectors including agriculture, health, business and science can take advantage of this initiative and come up with ideas that will be considered for days and properly crafted for investment.
‘GITAG seeks to help and motivate young people and students. If you have an idea, bring it, we will analyze it and find you an investor. We are looking at various areas,” he said.
Regarding the criteria, he indicated that students of all levels can take advantage of them and come up with an innovative idea.
“Basically, we want anyone from anywhere, whether they’re a college student or not.” But what we want is someone with an innovative idea,” he added.
He believed that the chamber will also provide scholarships for undergraduate students who wish to pursue their masters studies abroad.
“As part of the work of the chambers, it is to give scholarships to Ghanaians, whether they are students or those who want to improve their skills. Every year, within the next four years, we will give 30 scholarships to Ghanaians. Ghanaians,” he explained.
Finally, he called for unity with regard to trade and the business community on the African continent, which is in line with the objective of the Global Africa Trade Advisory Chamber.
