Quick Angels Limited, the first formal and institutionalised Angel Investor Company in Ghana, has started a nationwide tour to reach out to potential and existing entrepreneurs on the need for equity financing
The tour is in collaboration with Africa Internship Academy, an institution noted for training and nurturing entrepreneurs, and is to create awareness about the Quick Angels Limited brand and its service offer.
Speaking on the nationwide tour, the Brands Communication and Business Development Manager at Quick Angels Limited, Mrs. Veronica Ofosuhemaa Owusu-Ansah explained that Quick Angel Limited is set up primarily to provide equity financing or funding to startups, potential and existing entrepreneurs, and persons with smart business ideas but are lacking funding to begin.
She added that the move is also to reach out and educate the masses, especially entrepreneurs, on Angel Investing and Equity Financing.
‘’As an entrepreneur you do not need debt financing to begin. It kills your innovation. You should be busy thinking of how to revolutionise or originate new ideas, or add on some specifications to your already existing business to meet demands or lead in your space and not thinking of how to pay off a debt that you took to start the business. And this is where ‘angel investing’ is paramount. All we need from you is a smart idea or business that has prospects and is economically viable,” she added
Commenting on the partnership, the Co-founder of Africa Internship Academy, Emmanuel Leslie Addae, noted that this is the first of its kind in Ghana when we talk of angel investors. “We are proud to be associated with them on this tour to reach as many entrepreneurs as possible who over the years, due to funding, could not proceed with their dreams.
“I have come across hundreds of potential and existing entrepreneurs who could not survive because of funding. The arrival of Quick Angels Limited is therefore essential.
“We hope that by the end of the tour, hundreds of entrepreneurs will benefit from Quick Angels Limited’s investment opportunities.”
The tour started in Accra on the 31st of May 2019. It is expected to take turns each month region by region. Kumasi is next on June 28th 2019.
