It was all joy as 10 entrepreneurs walked away with GHS 25,000 each from the Richard Quaye foundation in the free seed capital challenge.
After weeks of going through over 1,200 entries, 40 candidates were selected and screened to 17 finalists, of which 10 winners emerged.
The 10 winners were from diverse industries including Agriculture, Software Development, IT, Fashion, plastic waste recycling, among others.
Winners on the 21st gathered at the Quick Angels premises and had a round table discussion with the founder and CEO of Quick Angels Limited, who is the man behind the Richard Quaye Foundation Initiative, Mr. Richard Nii Armah Quaye.
He interacted with the 10 winners on the essence of the seed capital and advised them on financial management and discipline as some of the major metrics in winning the entrepreneurship journey.
The winners were full of praise for this gesture.
They asked for periodic mentorship which was granted to them via an open-door policy for all.
The winners took turns taking their cash cheques. There was a lot to eat and drink and network.
