By  |  August 23, 2018

Two Ghanaian illustrious young leaders and entrepreneurs have concerted efforts to create an innovative 360-degree ecosystem platform that is tailored to support, enlighten and accelerate young African entrepreneurs and their startups.  

Caroline Esinam Adzogble and Kwame A.A Opoku have launched Caroline University as a non-academic, non-certified training platform for entrepreneurs who are in the trenches of building and scaling innovative ideas with an accessible funding facility to all entrepreneurs that will be undergoing training in the institution.  

Caroline is one of the continent’s most lauded female trailblazers in the education and technology industries while Kwame is an award-winning global keynote speaker and serial entrepreneur. Both founders of CaroilneU are below the age of 30.

At the inauguration of the platform, Caroline noted that the accelerator is in the provision of growth hacks, practical tips, and tricks that will help in tackling early-stage problems from seasoned entrepreneurs. She that CarolineU’s programs would give startups in-depth knowledge about the industry and obtain broader network linkages from the coaches and partners on the platform.

According to her, Caroline University is open to any individual or team with high growth, entrepreneurial business ideas or high-impact social ventures, ranging from technology to retail, as well as anything in-between.

The university has its office located on the 9th floor at the Movenpick Ambassador hotel and will be open for enrolling entrepreneurs into training programs from January 10, 2019.

The futurist Kwame said the university is open to all kinds of verticals from B2B to B2C, and from software to hardware. “CarolineU will make sure that all companies that are accepted will make the most of the university’s offers irrespective of which vertical they are from.”

According to him, the accelerator is designed to instill transformational leadership, business acumen and a supportive network for early-stage startups.
