I have partnered with Sezornam Bosson of Future You Ltd to give folks an opportunity to learn about what entrepreneurs are doing in Ghana, and to mentor where there is a right fit. Future You mentors, coaches, and invests in some of the most enterprising entrepreneurs in Ghana.

A lot of young Africans in the Diaspora are interested in doing business in Africa and want a personal perspective on what works and doesn't work. I share a bit of what I've seen and why I think certain areas are more lucrative than others.
Our generation has been exposed to more and can therefore do more with what our parents have lacked the imagination or ability to do with what they have. Let's look at real estate and what young Africans can do with these assets.
