Installment 6 of 15 – Andreas Widmer’s remarks at SECAM, Accra Ghana July 29. 2010
The Pioneers of Prosperity Awards Program is based on SEVEN’s experience that great companies exist in even the most challenging business environments. We believe that greater prosperity can be achieved in emerging markets if these existing models of success are better understood and effectively replicated. Showcasing local success stories, focusing on small to medium size firms, will help to inspire a new generation of entrepreneurs that can serve as the engine of increased growth and prosperity for their country.
Pioneers of Prosperity will award winners with up to US $100,000 to invest in technical infrastructure and training for their companies, and connect them to networks of technical expertise, potential investors, and other cutting-edge entrepreneurs on the local, regional, and global level.
