New Business Challenge Ghana – Netherlands

Anually, fromĀ 2014 until 2018 and again in the summer of 2019 we coach twenty Dutch and twenty Ghanaian students who participate in the New Business Challenge Ghana. During this summer program we focus on Dutch enterprises operating in Ghana. Companies who have participated so far are Philips, Deltares, Vlisco, Tony’s Chocolonely / WakaWaka and Koudijs. These companies have questions regarding their work in Ghana, which students can help to answer. The goal of the challenge is to increase the possibilities to find a job for Ghanaian students and to let Dutch students experience what doing buisness in Ghana is about and what opportunities are there to be found. In our coaching activities we focus on intercultural collaboration, how to tackle the cases, and on personal development.
