The Social Innovators Africa Programme is a Social Initiative of the Bureau for Research and Development (BFRD). It is a support-based business and career development initiative for Christian professionals in a quest to promoting sustainable enterprises and creating more jobs.
This objective is not achieved through a onetime event but a series of activities and support initiatives such as masterclass series, virtual business incubators and career platforms, nonfinancial supports, our tech-savvy FMRS Innovation Lab, among others.
We will offer diverse range of supports to young professionals valued at 1000s of Ghana Cedis at no cost; business technology solution, software, business eResource, skills supports for career enrichment, etc.
All Masterclass Series will be held at Holiday Inn Accra Airport. A number of supports are given instantly upon completion of the 2 Day Masterclass program followed by other tailored technical supports. Please note that we do not give funding to young entrepreneurs but can assist or facilitate project financing through our funding forum. In some cases, individuals or businesses are assigned to a dedicated mentor or coach aside support given. There will be a conference, career fair as well as an exhibition/B2B Meeting to climax the programme. This will witness the participation of businesses and individuals from various countries and create unique global opportunities for all.
