The Startup Journey

Get to know about all the wonderful and mind blowing things students in Ghana are doing by subscribing to this channel.

What is the Startup Journey?

The Startup Journey Show, is an interview series where we meet up with student entrepreneurs all over the nation, for them to share with us their experiences and give us insight into what they do, how they started, challenges they are facing and how they are overcoming it.

Why this show?

It serves three main purposes;

1. This is an opportunity for us to showcase to the world what some students in Ghana are doing or are capable of doing and also help sell the products or services of these student entrepreneurs to a larger audience.

2. It also serves to motivate many more young people to start something of their own. We believe that as these young people get to know what some of their colleagues in similar circumstances as themselves are doing, they will be motivated to also do something.
3. More so, by sharing their challenges and how they are overcoming them on the show, it goes a long way to help those other young people who have started their own businesses and find themselves in similar situations.

Where is it hosted?

Currently, it is a YouTube Show featured on GhstudentWallet YouTube Channel. You can check it out using this link The Startup Journey Playlist

Where is it organized?

We travel the whole nation to interview student entrepreneurs in various institutions. Currently, most of our visits are to tertiary institutions. Announcements are made on our various platforms (website, and social media – Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, Linkedin ) on where we are going next as and when there is going to be one. Do check up regularly to know when next we are coming to your campus.
