A loan of $50,000 helps to purchase a generator for stable electricity, improve its space to make better working conditions for entrepreneurs, and attract and retain top talent to achieve its vision.

Impact Hub's story

Job creation remains the single biggest challenge facing policymakers in Ghana. However, there’s new entrepreneurial energy across country. There’s a generation of entrepreneurs creating new opportunities and tackling some of the biggest social challenges of our times. These home-grown innovators operate in a mainstream market that often stifles innovation.

Since 2013, Impact Hub Accra (IHA) has built a micro-innovation enclave with a focus on lifting these barriers so young entrepreneurs can thrive in the new digital economy. Support is three-fold:
Real Estate Cluster & Infrastructure Support
Curated Events
Acceleration & Access to Capital

This loan will enable IHA to purchase a 100kWa generator (to keep stable backup electricity since the national grid is unstable), facilitate productivity gains for entrepreneurs via space improvements (improved ventilation, ergonomic furniture) and attract and retain talent in line with their extensive ambition. IHA now needs to upgrade its support infrastructure to bring its impact to the next level.
