Multimedia agency Digital Times Africa and Ghana’s startup community Startup Accra on 15th June 2021 has announced a partnership to promote startups’ activities in Ghana and ultimately Africa.

The partnership is a collaborative effort of the media agency and the startup community to co-create contents, accelerate startups and offer them the platform to attract partnerships and funding opportunities.

“As a growing community, this coalition promotes our services as an organisation, broadens market reach and expands our impact for our mutual benefits”.

“The alliance will go a long way to build a vibrant ecosystem as it gives us an opportunity to scale up within the ecosystem. As we know, the media is critical to the success of an ecosystem and with both media and our community together, that goal can be achieved,” said Norbert Dziwornu, co-founder of Startup Accra.

There is an emergence of talents, business and entrepreneurs in Africa, but there are still visible gaps because businesses lack access to the correct information and resources. Digital Times stands to bridge these gaps by fostering collaborative growth through education and capacity building.

“As a media entity at the forefront of innovation and entrepreneurship, we want to see that we channel information with the right intent to the right people so that they can process the information to create the needed change in the ecosystem. The media’s role is critical to the growth of startup, entrepreneur and changemakers, and amplifying their voice, so the world hears what Africa has to offer is what we aim to do,” noted Richard Joseph, Product Manager for Digital Times Africa.
