The 4th edition of the New Business Challenge takes place during the summer of 2017! Registration for the 2017 edition will be open from the 18th of April to May 19th 2017. The selected candidates will be invited to the Kickoff event at the 2nd of June 2017, which takes place simultaneously in The Netherlands and Ghana.

This years’ edition, 5 companies have formulated a business case regarding their activities or plans in Ghana. They need fresh and out-of-the-box insights and solutions of entrepreneurial students and young professionals to take the next steps! The companies People’s Pension Trust, Closing the Loop, Delft, Cargill and Niledutch have formulated a business case.

A well-balanced program is in place for participants to arrive at the best possible solution and to maximize their development. The teams go on two study trips full with trainings, workshops and fieldtrips. They will be coached and supported by experts and professionals. All teams present their solutions at the Residency of the Dutch Ambassador in Ghana at August 4th. An independent jury will choose the winning business solution of the NBC 2017!

The NBC doesn’t stop after the final! There is a follow-up which is focused on taking the solutions further and on career development. Participants are part of an online community and have access to internships, job opportunities, start-up incubators, trainings and networking events.
