‘If you want to get investors and businesses into Africa you need to educate them and get them onto the ground to experience Africa for themselves.’
Moez Virani, CFO and COO of Northgate managing a fund of US$3 billion.

AB2020 and Africa Business Jumpstart have come together to coordinate a Business Mission to Ghana in 2016 and beyond… The guided business missions serve investors, business owners and diaspora Africans in the United Kingdom and the United States with an interest in Ghana. They will showcase opportunities, provide a platform for communication with local partners, and foster successful market entry in to Ghana.

Sign Up for Your Guided Business Mission to Accra, Ghana
Sunday 8th May – Saturday 14th May 2016

Learn how to communicate with stakeholders, how to mitigate risks on the ground, and how to design business concepts that work locally, so you have an in-depth technical understanding before doing business in Ghana.


The business mission will consist of a small group of 5 to 7 participants to enable us to provide a personalised mission on the ground that thoroughly addresses the interest of each participant. This means that we will tailor the final mission details after you have registered so we can apply the relevant focus on the industries you want to know about, including ICT, Real Estate & construction, Agriculture & food processing, Manufacturing and Export of African goods.


We are working with local stakeholders on the ground. Our mission will be welcomed and guided by the Ghana Investment Promotion Center, the government entity and first stop for investors and business people coming from abroad. We will meet a good range of government entities, private industry stakeholders, and potential partners locally.


What distinguishes our mission from the usual trade missions is that each mission is tailor-made and we will plan every detail ourselves. This will allow us to stay highly mobile and flexible during our stay in Ghana to enable spontaneous meetings with industry stakeholders/experts if and when additional requests occur.

We will also coach and assist participants with formulating their business concept and some follow up communication with local stakeholders if required. The plan is for you to get started immediately with implementation upon return to the UK/USA.


The cost of the business mission is US$2,500 including all meetings, personal coaching sessions, local travel (including pick up from Kotoka International Airport) and accommodation (six nights in a comfortable hotel with your own room). Payment plan available (cost excludes food and flights).
