The primary goal is to showcase the work of local and international entrepreneurs (social), the impact of their organisation and the opportunities for the youth. The event will also bring together innovators and doers in Kumasi, to interact and share ideas that have the propensity for social and economic impact.
This is the 5th Edition of Kumasi Konnect and our speaker David Asare Asiamah will focus on the topic "Doing Business in Kumasi". David will share his personal journey as Agriculturist and award-wining farmer and how he has thrived over the years growing a global brand in Kumasi. His unrelenting drive and inward tenacity is seen in his numerous advocacy drives across the length and breadth of the city. His vision is to be the leader of robust agribusiness models that produce safe, quality, affordable and consistent foodstuff to his customers in a financially, socially and environmentally sustainable manner.
With energy, willingness to learn, human reach and emerging public figure to the next generation of agribusiness, David strongly believes that innovation and creativity are invaluable assets in today’s global economy and as such the youth should be allowed to experiment with ideas that have the propensity to change the way we live. Based on the realisation that any line of work that is impact purposed, including the realm of education, is much about behaviour change through acquisition and implementation by benefactors, David founded Agro Mindset, a mission-driven firm specializing in agribusiness ventures. Our focus is to run highly profitable farm-based enterprises with long term growth potential and showcase this know how to young aspiring farmers in an industry relevant manner.
David has been recipient of multiple awards including the African Achiever Awards for agriculture excellence, The Future Awards for agriculture, GUBA for recognition of innovation and best practice in corporate sustainability and the Ghana Top 30 Under 30 amongst others. He is a Global Shaper of the World Economic Forum and belongs to the Kumasi Hub. He holds an MSc (Agriculture and Development) from the University of Reading, UK and BSc. Agriculture from the Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology (KNUST). David has an insatiable passion to always outdo his previous accomplishments.
The venue is the Kumasi Hive, Kentinkrono,behind Mizpah School and the date is 14th April, 2016.
