Quick Angels Limited, the first formal and institutionalized Angel Investor Company in Ghana has started a nationwide tour to reach out to potential and existing entrepreneurs on the need for equity financing.
The tour which is in collaboration with Africa Internship Academy, an institution noted for training and nurturing entrepreneurs, is to create awareness about the Quick Angels Limited brand and their service offer.
Speaking on the nationwide tour, the Brands Communication and Business Development Manager at Quick Angels Limited, Veronica Ofosuhemaa Owusu-Ansah, explained that Quick Angels Limited was set up primarily to provide equity financing or funding to startups, potential and existing entrepreneurs, and persons with smart business ideas but without funding to begin.
She added that the move was also to reach out and educate the masses especially entrepreneurs on Angel investing and equity financing.
‘’As an entrepreneur you do not need debt financing to begin with.It kills your innovation,” she said.
She noted that entrepreneurs should rather focus on how to revolutionize or originate new ideas or add on some specifications to the already existing business to meet demands.
“And this is where angel investing is paramount,” she said.
All we need from you is a smart idea or business that has prospective and is economically viable, ” she added.
Commenting on the partnership, the Co-founder of Africa Internship Academy, Emmanuel Leslie Addae, noted that it was the first of its kind in Ghana.
He said “when we talk of angel investors and we are proud to be associated with them on this tour to reach to as many entrepreneurs as possible who over the years due to funding could not proceed with their dream.”
‘’I have come across hundreds of potential and existing entrepreneurs who could not survive because of funding,” he said.
The arrival of Quick Angels Limited is therefore essential, he said.
We hope that by the end of the tour, hundreds of entrepreneurs would benefit from Quick Angels Limited’s investment opportunities, ” he continued.
The tour started in Accra on the 31st of May, 2019.
It is expected to take turn each month region by region.
Kumasi is next this June 28th, 2019.
