About the Kosmos Innovation Center in Ghana
The Kosmos Innovation Center (KIC) invests in young entrepreneurs and small businesses who have big ideas and want to see their country grow. The KIC was established in Ghana in 2016 with programs focused on inspiring and empowering young entrepreneurs to drive change in their own country. Since its inception, the KIC has focused on innovation in agriculture – the country’s most important sector and largest employer. More than 270 aspiring entrepreneurs have participated in KIC Ghana programs, resulting in the creation of eight promising start-ups that have gone on to secure seed funding, additional business training, and capital investment.
DAI, an international development company, helps the Kosmos Innovation Center to design and implement programs that advance locally led, market-driven solutions to some of the country’s key challenges. It provides capacity building support, investment due diligence, and ongoing technical assistance to the team.
