GCIC trains entrepreneurs on climate change

Ghana Climate Innovation Centre (GCIC), a non-governmental organisation (NGO) funded by the governments of Denmark and the Netherlands and managed by a consortium of Ashesi University, Ernst and Young, SNV Ghana and United Nations University, have organised a two-day workshop to train entrepreneurs on climate change issues in Koforidua, Eastern Region.

Marketing Manager of GCIC, Ahuma Cabutey, has stated, among others, that the aim of the centre is to develop and support an exceptional set of transformational ventures and entrepreneurs who are adaptive and mitigating solutions for climate change issues in Ghana

Ghana Climate Innovation Centre is a pioneering business incubator with a unique focus of developing Small and Medium-sized Enterprise (SME) ventures and entrepreneurs in Ghana’s “Green Economy,” he said.

According to him, GCIC has five thematic areas that it focuses on such as Energy efficiency, Domestic water management, Water purification, Climate smart Agriculture and Solar energy.

“Hence we are prepared to support and develop any entrepreneur who has a business that falls within any of the thematic areas to grow his venture as far as climate change issues are concerned.

He, therefore, urged all and sundry who wants to venture into any commercial activity that is environmental friendly, especially unemployed graduates to seize the opportunity to apply to the Centre for consideration.
