Our Goals for Ignite 2021

After the 2020 pandemic, we believe agribusinesses cannot continue to do 21st century businesses with 20th century models and strategies. A lot of women-led small businesses have collapsed due to this pandemic and it is time to RETHINK, REFINE and REFIRE!

1 Igniters to Rethink their value chain to increase productivity and gain competitive advantage.

2 Igniters to Refine by adopting new tools, networking with the right people to drive productivity and innovation. Finding new ways to creating and increasing value rather than lowering prices. 

3 Igniters to Refire by putting action behind their thoughts and plans to ignite Africa!

Virtual Sessions

1-30 September

For 15+ hours each week (Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays), Igniters would be rethinking their business models. Topics that will push them onto the springboard will be discussed. They will be  encouraged to unlearn the things that didn’t work out and relearn the things that work with proven records.

On Mondays and Wednesdays the theoretical and practical sessions allow Igniters to think critically about their businesses and reimagine the future

Residential Sessions

For 40+ hours each week, participants take part in sessions and discussions that will help them refine and refire. From Monday to Wednesday, Igniters discuss and share innovative experiences that will allow them to rethink. 

Thursdays are for field trips and exposure into the world of Agribusiness in Ghana.

One on one Review and Refine Session on Friday afternoons. It is also a check in time for all participants to foster a group dynamic that is positive and productive.

With a small number of fifteen (10) – (15) participants, they become a tight team that learn how to get things done while having fun!

Mentorship Journey

Mentorship phase follows right after the virtual phase. Mentors who have walked the business and research talk are selected to share their experiences with these igniters on a mentorship journey. This journey is for three months.
