Entrepreneurs PEOPLE

TedxAccra 2015 Speaker – Mansa Ayisi-Okyere

Mansa Ayisi-Okyere is the Executive Secretary for African Entrepreneurs Hub. A non-profit organisation she’s helped build from conception, with a focus on encouraging youth entrepreneurship.

At the age of 21, Mansa founded her first company and subsequently, has gone on to build a reputation as skillful professional with exceptional abilities in business development and fundraising.

‘I am a firm believer in the power of entrepreneurship. I see it as the vehicle to drive development in Africa. If we teach our youth to value entrepreneurship and integrity I believe a lot of our societal gripes will be resolved.’

Mansa is married with 3 children.

Why should you listen to her talk?

Did you know that 75% of Ghana’s population fall within the youth bracket? And that of these 60% are unemployed? The consequences of youth unemployment cannot be underestimated. The Arab spring is a good indication of what happens when unemployment goes unchecked in a largely youth dominated populace. Youth unemployment is a time bomb waiting to explode and we must do something. I believe in the power of entrepreneurship as a solution to youth unemployment. If better supported, this is a way to address our developmental hiccups.

Quote from Mansa:

The decisions we make now must count as solid blocks for the future. Make a difference every day!
