All is set for the McDan entrepreneurship challenge season 2 (two).

The much-awaited event, which gives lifetime business opportunity to more the one million potential entrepreneurs across the country, is expected to be launched Thursday, October 1 at the Accra Marriott Hotel at 8:30 a.m. prompt. Many dignitaries and respected businessmen are expected to grace the grand and official launch of the challenge.

According to McDan Foundation, organisers of the McDan Entrepreneurship Challenge, the event maintained that youth unemployment remains the biggest national security threat to the country and the McDan Entrepreneurship Challenge is seeking to help empower the youth by creating their own jobs.

The McDan Entrepreneurship Challenge is more than just a reality TV show. It is part of our ecosystem that seeks to uncover and incubate the best new Ghanaian entrepreneurs and businesses.

As the sole aim, the McDan Entrepreneurship Challenge is seeking to promote entrepreneurship among the youth in Ghana through idea development, training, mentoring through to project implementation.

At the semifinal stage, the Challenge will see a maximum of fifty (50) young people between the ages of 16 and 29 selected from all regions in Ghana to compete for up to US$ 100,000 for a period of three (3) months.

The challenge is proudly sponsored by the McDan Foundation and the McDan Group of companies. The contestants will have the opportunity to pilot their projects on a small-scale basis under careful guidance. After careful evaluation of the projects, a panel of seasoned consultants will select the most viable project which shall receive funding up to US$100,000. The remaining team members will have the opportunity to present their projects to other investors for possible funding.

QUOTE: There may be only one winner, but there are so many opportunities to so many contestants.
