About the Ghana Ecosystem Snapshot

Goals of the Snapshot
Understanding Local Assets

When entrepreneurial ecosystem builders and support organizations think about launching new programs, it's important that they can understand the assets that already exist in the community. That's why we databased every Program and Organization that we could find within Ghana, so that leaders can know what to build next.

Helping Entrepreneurs Navigate

Finding resources that fit the needs of your venture is never an easy tasks, so we wanted to use the information we were collecting about Ghana's ecosystem to help entrepreneurs locate the Programs that can help them build their growth startups, traditional businesses, microenterprises, and other ventures.

Creating a Living Representation

Entrepreneurial Ecosystems are dynamic - they are constantly changing, adding new Organizations, and serving new entrepreneurs. We wanted to capture the fluid nature of the ecosystem in Ghana, so this snapshot is kept continually up to date using EcoMap's technology.

The Process
Behind the Snapshot
Identify Support Organizations

ANDE has been performing Ecosystem Snapshots since 2015. We used the data from the 2017 Ghana snapshot as a basis to identify the organizations working to support entrepreneurs and ecosystem builders in the country

Explore Support Orgs
Collect Information on Programs

After identifying the support organizations, information about the different programs they offered was extracted from various web sources. These Programs were bucketed into 11 different program types with various tags

Explore Programs
Supplement Data with Surveys

After collecting the majority of information about the support organizations and programs, ANDE administered an additional survey to gather more detailed information. The results of this will be available in January 2021.

Common Questions
Who is behind the snapshot?

The Republic of Ghana Ecosystem Snapshot is a collaboration between The Aspen Network of Development Entrepreneurs (ANDE), a global network of organizations that propel entrepreneurship in emerging markets, and EcoMap Technologies, a company that uses AI to identify and analyze assets within entrepreneurial ecosystems

How was the data collected?

The Data collection process for this process was a three-step process. First, EcoMap looked at ANDE's 2017 Ecosystem Snapshot to identify key organizations working within the Republic of Ghana's entrepreneurial ecosystem. Then, EcoMap identified additional Organizations, compiled information about the Programs that these Organizations offer, and then extracted as much information as possible about what they do, who they serve, and what sectors they work within. Finally, EcoMap and ANDE are in the process of individually reaching out to the Organizations to solicit additional information from these partners, which will be available in early 2021.

How can Partners update their Information?

If EcoMap or ANDE was able to collect your contact information, you would have received an email with a unique link that you can use to add your supplementary information and make any corrections to the data that we've collected. If your Organization is not listed, or if you did not receive this email, you can fill out this form, and we will be in touch.
