Africa Business & Investment Mission 2016: Investment & export opportunities in pineapple production
Ghana (Accra) - May 6 - 12, 2018
Structure of business mission to Ghana
Arrival on Sunday the 6th of May 2018 in Accra from your point of departure anywhere in the world. Departure from Accra to your final destination on Saturday the 12th of May (you can extend your own visit in Ghana for tourist purposes on individual basis if you wish to do so).
Meetings, activities, and feasibility studies on the ground will take place from Monday the 7th to Friday the 11th for five very intensive whole days.
Your mission leaders will be Dr. Harnet and Akosua Annobil. We will be welcomed on Monday morning by representatives of the Ghana Investment Promotion Center who will also give us an introduction to the opportunities on the ground
Meetings with local businesses and industry stakeholders who are looking for partners or investors will follow throughout the week from morning to evening
Site visits, feasibility assessments, and introductions to potential business partners in your industry that will serve your own start up or market entry plans are part of the schedule
The mission will be highly practical and flexible and we will tailor it towards the unqiue rquirements and industry interests of the mission particpants even at last minute when new questions arise during our visit, so we can guarantee high responsiveness, satisfaction, and output.
Why our Diaspora Supperreturns Business & Investment Missions are different from other trade missions: They are hands-on, intense, and allow a much higher level of practical interaction with real opportunities and people on the ground. Our business missions are not statically pre-planned, but highly responsive towards the interests and requirements of the mission group participants - therefore no mission is the same.
Extras & benefits
Groups consulting sessions during the mission to narrow down your business or investment plan. Acces to Dr. Harnet and Akosua with important follow up questions (in writing).
We assist you in the follow-up on communication with local stakeholders and action planning 1 month after our mission to Ghana to allow your momentum to continue.
Your Missions leaders for Ghana:
Which sectors and industries will the missions target?
The final industry focus during each mission will depend on the interests of the mission participants. However, we envisage a focus on
- Agriculture & food processing
- Export of African goods
- Real Estate & investments
- Other (please contact Dr. Harnet to inquire about other industries)
The price of each mission is US$2,500 for the business mission + $297 to be paid immediately as a seat holder (this will also cover 1 week local accommodation). Payments options of two to three installments are available. However the last installment needs to be paid 2 weeks prior to travel latest.
Special price rates apply to members of the Africa Business Academy and Africa Business BootCamp 2018. Please use your promotional code when registering.
Included in the price for the business missions are:
1. All meetings and site visits locally
2. Local travel including your pick-up from Accra airport upon arrival and drop-off
3. Accommodation (possibly including breakfast)
NOT included in the price:
Your international travel (flights), your visa cost, your local food and beverages expenses, and any other additional cost related to the mission that may occur at your end are not included in the price.
Our Africa Diaspora Business Missions are for people who have already decided that they want to do business with Africa or invest there. We are working with government stakeholders and local businesses on the ground who invest their time and trust in us and we want to deliver output and build new ventures in or with Africa. Therefore: serious participants only.
Please note that seats are available at a very limited number. Each business mission will consist of 5-9 people only. You may want to book quickly to avoid disappointment. You can however be put on the waiting list or secure your seat for the next mission.
If you are not sure if the business mission is for you, we can schedule a free 30-min Skype conversation after an initial e-mail introduction. Please request this via email@example.com
How to book your participation
Click on the REGISTER NOW button below. On the new registration page select your mission option at the top right and then click on 'purchase offer' to proceed. You will receive a short thank you note in the end, which means your payment has gone through.You will then receive consecutive e-mails in the run-up to the business missions with all the information you need.
Payments via Paypal to firstname.lastname@example.org is possible, too.
Cancellations can be made up to 8 weeks prior to travel and any payments you have made towards the mission will be fully refunded. A cost of 50% is due 7-4 weeks prior to our trip. And 100% payment for last minute cancellations (less than 4 weeks), as the mission only consists of few members and someone else could have booked your seat. However, if a last-minute replacement can be found (e.g. from the waiting list) a full refund is due to you.
If for any reason an inadequate number of people (three or less) should have registered for one mission, we reserve the right to cancel the mission up to 4 weeks prior to travel and fully refund you. However this scenario is pretty unlikely.
For any questions contact the Chief Coordinator Dr. Harnet directly via email@example.com
Now, if you want to walk the talk - this is your chance. It cannot get better and more convenient than this.
We look forward to working with you !
