Catalyst definition: "a substance [person] that can be added to a reaction to increase the reaction rate without getting consumed in the process. Catalysts typically speed up a reaction by reducing the activation energy or changing the reaction mechanism". Africa needs Catalysts - both local and abroad.
Catalysts (TACG - The African Catalytic Group, Adinkra Expo, Certified Africa, BlackBand, Adinkra Group) invites vetted ecosystem actors, influencers, creatives, visionaries, and investors across Ghana and its diaspora to a day of practical, impactful sessions and meaningful networking.
The December-January months are the perfect season to convene two important groups in the African development landscape: locals in Ghana and Africans in the Diaspora visiting the country for the holidays. Hosted on the 2nd day of the new year and right after the December festivities at a gorgeous hotel venue in Accra, Catalysts aims to catapult attendees to the next phase of their work/interaction with Ghana by creating an environment that fosters meaningful sharing of information, contacts, and resources between the two groups.
The event features lightning talks from seasoned Ghanaian executives, brand new material from leading experts in applying AI and blockchain to create business value in Africa, table discussions to drive industry learnings, and individual reflection to drive personal vision and impact.
Participants will leave:
- A candid discussion with entrepreneurs in Ghana
- An expanded network of people highly impactful in their work
- Exposure to at least one brand new material (Blockchain and/or Data Science)
- A plan on how to further their work in Ghana/ Africa
- Real-time interaction with a curated selection of investment opportunities
