The University of Professional Studies, Accra(UPSA), has launched its Business Incubator Centre; to assist young professionals to generate, develop, co-develop, re-develop, and hone business ideas into viable ventures.
The Centre would also serve as the nodal point of the University in terms of galvanising critical knowledge around the interface of theory and practice for business start-ups in order to enhance teaching, research and learning activities.
Mr John Awuah, Chief Executive Officer, UMB, said while speaking at the launch, students who would avail themselves to the facility must work at it; and be extremely careful the next businesses they venture in, when they attain some level of success as start-ups.
Mr Awuah noted that as a Banker, he sees first hand business ideas that fail for one reason or the other, and was therefore hopeful that the Centre would address many of these reasons for failure.
He said, I am personally excited of the role UMB will play in supporting and assisting students who decide to take advantage of the initiative.
Professor Abednego Okoe Feehi Amartey, Vice Chancellor of UPSA, tasked the Faculty to work hard in ensuring that the initiative achieved results and as well tasked students to prepare themselves to grab opportunities that would be provided them.
Prof Amartey, who officially launched the Business Incubator Centre, also inaugurated a nine-member advisory board for the incubation centre.
