CEO, WAN-Hive Ghana


"I am particularly excited about the program’s focus on digital transformation, which is a critical issue for young leaders and entrepreneurs in the current global landscape. As a young leader who has successfully launched and scaled a social enterprise that uses digital tools to provide affordable and sustainable solutions to rural communities in Ghana, I believe that the AGYLE program presents a great opportunity to network, learn, and create long-term collaboration through the transfer of knowledge, technology, and resources to solve shared challenges. "
