Statement of Urgency 

According to the Ghana Statistical Service, 1.76 million people were unemployed in Ghana as of 2022. This figure refers to people who have attained working age, are not in school, are not under-employed, and are not engaged in any form of menial jobs. These are people who are actively looking for jobs and cannot find one. To put it in context, this figure is equivalent to about 50 times the total number of students currently pursuing various programs at the University of Ghana.

Of those who are outside the unemployment bracket, a good number of them are running startups. Unfortunately, it is estimated that 50 to 60% of startups established worldwide fail.

Urgent steps are needed to create more jobs through entrepreneurship to help deal with the unemployment challenge in Ghana. Additionally, urgent steps are needed to provide startups with the needed coaching to reduce failure rates, and increase success rates.
