The MTN Pulse "Just Be Series" is a youth empowerment and entrepreneurship series designed to help young Ghanaian entrepreneurs cultivate their entrepreneurial mindset and business acumen. It equips aspiring business owners and professionals to take advantage of the talks and post-session program.
This year’s “Just Be Series”, will feature 10 young entrepreneurs exhibiting their product as MTN’s support towards start-up businesses. There will also be a post-event breakout session where in-person participants will be grouped into “up and coming” and “early stage” entrepreneurs to have hands-on workshops with professionals in the areas of capital acquisition, design-thinking, branding and marketing strategies to grow their businesses.
These sessions will be facilitated by Ahaspora and Partners who are experts in this field.
