The Chief Executive Officer of Samboad Business Group Limited, Samuel Kwame Boadu has called on investors to invest more in upcoming entrepreneurs in Ghana. According to the author of ‘God In Your Business” when such investments are done businesses in Ghana would thrive and expand. He says this will help reduce unemployment among the country’s youth.
Speaking to a group of young entrepreneurs at the Launch of Improve Africa in Accra, Mr. Samuel Boadu says ” Africans need to show interest in everything including local businesses” Improve Africa is a thought leadership program aimed at challenging African leaders, entrepreneurs, professionals and the youths to aspire to achieve greatness in whatever they do. The Firm is also aimed at promoting strategic thinking and the spirit of entrepreneurship among the youth to increase the fortunes of the continent.
Samuel Kwame Boadu urged that one of the major challenges facing most Ghanaian start ups is their inability to expand beyond their cities and countries because of lack of investment ” No serious business desirous of making great impact in the continent and the world would be content with remaining small.” He adds that “The major bane of many Ghanaian businesses is the lack of people with capital to reinvest in the productive sector of the economy”.
He said Ghana needs people to invest and help small businesses with loan to enable them grow their fortunes adding most rich Ghanaians love to spend money but not in the country. Samuel Kwame Boadu further says ” the only way out of the current challenges facing Ghanaian businesses would be to change our thinking about remaining in our small territorial boundaries and create something that would reach every corner of the country.”
