I am Isaac Opoku, a graduate from Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology with a Bachelor in Communication Design and majored in Advertising and Media Management. I`d describe myself as a Hard-working and Persistent person with strong interpersonal and presentation skills who works well with others from diverse cultural and organizational backgrounds and take a lot of pride in completing tasks both on schedule and at an elite level.

Why I participate:
I deem it a great honor to apply for this year`s New Business Challenge as I believe it will give me the opportunity to meet like-minded students to from different Universities and Cultural backaground to come together and discuss innovative ways of helping the participartory companies solve their problems and increase sales as well.
Entrepreneurship as a field had always awed me right from my days in high school. The penchant for Entrepreneurship was evident immediately I got to know what it entailed. My journey towards pursuing a higher education has not been straightforward, however, persistence and tenacity of purpose has seen me through, up to this stage. My dream of becoming an a problem solver looks more of a reality than ever as I believe participating in the New Business Challenge will help give me the exposure to help build and groom me into a better entrepreneur.
I am therefore highly honored to have the opportunity to be selected to be part of this year`s ``New Business Challenge``. It is a dream come true for me. The program I believe will undoubtedly
widen my scope of understanding and increase my opportunities towards employment immensely and also the skills in solving business problems.
