Hi there! I am Ahmed Saalim. My journey in facilitating entrepreneurship began through my work with innovation hubs, where I played a pivotal role in designing and managing incubation and acceleration programs for youth in peri-urban Ghana, Tamale. This experience honed my ability to identify and nurture talent while promoting a culture of innovation. Additionally, I currently work with a global HCD Agency, Proportion Global and this has provided me with invaluable exposure to HCD methodologies, enabling me to lead impactful projects that prioritize user-centric solutions. With 7 years of professional experience, I have cultivated a diverse skill set in business development, innovation management, and Human-Centered Design (HCD). Through my work, I have successfully guided numerous entrepreneurs, leveraging my expertise and network to facilitate their growth and success in the dynamic startup landscape.

Mentorship motivation

  • I want to give back to the startup ecosystem and entrepreneurs coming up
  • I want to make new connections for myself and/or the organization I represent
  • I want to scout for new opportunities in engaging as an advisor or for a board seat

I find immense fulfillment in helping others realize their potential and achieve their dreams. Witnessing the growth and success of aspiring entrepreneurs brings me joy and inspires me to continue mentoring. I am driven by the belief that everyone deserves access to guidance and support on their journey towards success. By sharing my knowledge and experiences, I hope to empower individuals to overcome challenges, seize opportunities, and make a positive impact in their communities. Mentoring allows me to contribute meaningfully to the next generation of innovators and leaders, creating a ripple effect of positive change that extends beyond myself.
