New Business Challenge 2018 is Looking for Business Cases

We are looking for companies who want to participate in the 2018 edition of the New Business Challenge. If your company is located in Ghana and has a challenge which can be sorted out by a young, innovative, and creative team – the NBC is your chance!

The New Business Challenge is an annual business case competition in which 20 Dutch and 20 Ghanaian students and young professionals work together for 2 months in mixed teams on business cases for 5 companies that are active in both the Netherlands and Ghana. It is organized by GNBCC, together with our partner SuststainableMotion, and commissioned by the Netherlands Enterprise Agency and the Netherlands Embassy in Ghana. 2018 is the last year that we will organize this annual program, so the last chance for your company to make use of this opportunity! 

We are recruiting 5 companies which can each bring in their individual business challenge. Each business case will be addressed by two student teams, so your company will get two solutions at the end of the program.

Key information for companies:

  • Participation is free of charge
  • The company needs to have representation in Ghana as well as in the Netherlands
  • The business case should apply to Ghana, and should address an actual problem
  • The programme takes place between early June and early August 2018.

If you are interested in participating or want to know more, kindly contact Afke van der Woude at or 030 2767 825.
