We are happy to announce that Nadia Nana Yaa Owusu, CEO at STA AFRICA has been nominated under the Social entrepreneurs category of the Young Entrepreneur Awards. This category goes to a nominee whose business operations impacted most on society, especially, the poor/needy and the vulnerable. Substantial but verifiable evidence should have been established to that effect.
The Young Entrepreneur Awards is an annual scheme that has been instituted by the Youth Business Network Foundation (YBN) to identify and recognize young entrepreneurs and entrepreneurial individuals who defy the harsh entrepreneurial challenges facing the youth to establish on their own. The Awards, therefore, places high value on innovative, enduring and daring individuals who try to realize bold and clear-sighted ideas to establish businesses that creates job opportunities for others, thus complementing existing efforts to solving Ghana’s development needs.
The Awards is organized under the auspices of Ministry of Employment and Labour Relations, with support from National Entrepreneurship and Innovation Plan (NEIP), National Youth Authority (NYA), National Board for Small Scale Industries (NBSSI), and Ghana Investment Promotions Center (GIPC), to celebrate entrepreneurs below age 40, whiles empowering and motivating the youth to be jobs creators instead of jobs seekers.
