I am an accomplished Commercial and Investment Banker and Entrepreneur with over 35 years professional experience in the banking and finance industry as well a the entrepreneurship ecosystem in Ghana and the Africa region. I set up and still operates an Investment Banking Firm – International financial Services Limited for the past 22 years. I also set up an MSME Business Incubator – Emerging Entrepreneurs Centre in 2008. This Small Business Incubator is still in operation. I have run small and SME Business Incubation and Acceleration Programs for over 20 years. I am currently coaching and mentoring businesses in Ghana, Kenya, Tanzania etc. I have great natural passion for entrepreneurship, coaching and mentoring of start up and other entrepreneurs in Ghana and the Africa region.
In support of my entrepreneurship and financial expertise, I earned two Masters Degrees in Entrepreneurship and Small Enterprise development from The University of Cape Coast in Ghana and MBA in Social Entrepreneurship from ALtis University of Milan in Italy. I also earned a doctorate degree (PhD) in Banking and Finance in the year 2000 from Wayne Park university in USA.I had worked in Entrepreneurship development for more than twenty years. Against this background and age, I am now aspiring to be a Career Coach to spend the rest of my life in coaching and mentoring start-up MSMEs in Ghana and the Africa region. I believe mentoring and coaching can add value to new startup MSME in Africa and other regions. I am currently engaged in coaching and mentoring ten social businesses (on line/virtual) at the Grow Up Business Incubator – Yunus Environment Hub in Kenya as well as some start-ups in Ghana. Please refer to my company website: for some details and on going projects.
