“We are proud to promote success stories, technology advancement and disruption in one of the most dynamic business sectors in Ghana. Not only do we look at businesses but also individuals who have made a genuine impact on the market from within these companies. The industry is driven by people who deserve to have their contributions recognised,” he said.
This year’s event provided a platform to recognise and acknowledge government institutions in order to deepen the use to use technology to enrich the lives of citizens.
