Free exhibition at 2015 National Startup Festival

Organizers of the maiden edition of the National Startup Festival have announced plans to provide free exhibition opportunities for start-up entrepreneurs in the country.

The maiden edition of the National Startup Festival (NSF) which is expected to bring together some thousands of visitors and over 50 start-up entrepreneurs for networking, exhibitions, key-notes, workshops and awards is set to become the largest gathering of startup entrepreneurs, and startup eco-system leaders in the country.

Mr. Michael Ayirebi, Chief Executive of Stillwater Equity Partners, co-organizers of the 2015 NSF said the free exhibition is a major feature of this year’s show for strategic reasons. "Our aim is to show Ghanaian start-ups currently grappling with the high cost of marketing that there exist inexpensive promotion tools they can exploit," said Mr. Ayirebi.

Mr. Emmanuel Nyame of StartUp Cup Ghana also encouraged all Ghanaian start-ups looking to pitch for awesome rewards to do so by October 23, 2015.
