Techstripped Africa is mentoring university students to become the next generation of technopreneurs and leaders

Back in the days, graduating from the university came with so much pride and assurance of landing a good job but in these times, it’s not the case.

A report by the Institute of Statistics, Social and Economic Research (ISSER) states that only 10% of graduates find jobs after their first year of leaving school, going to prove that graduate unemployment in Ghana is the next pandemic in waiting because the numbers keep increasing every year.

The infamous statement by the minister of Finance at the recent graduation ceremony of UPSA, urging the graduates to find innovative ways of becoming entrepreneurs as the government payroll is full, received a lot of backlashes but behind the smokescreen, this is actually true as it will cut down graduate unemployment drastically.

On the back of this and many other reasons is why Techstripped Africa, a startup accelerator and
tech advocacy network founded by 2021 Mandela Washington Fellow, Kwame Owusu Ansah, is aimed at raising the next generation of technopreneurs and leaders from university campuses.
