A participant of the First Cohort of the SNV GrEEn Incubation programme facilitated by Duapa Werkspace.
The GrEEn Incubation Programme is a business support programme targeting green start-ups, sustainable businesses and provides eco-inclusive business model development, financial management, product development, market development and linkages, business regulatory compliance, peer-to-peer networking and exchanges as well as investment readiness support to green businesses.
In December 2021, the European Union (EU), under its Green Employment and Enterprise (GrEEn) opportunities in Ghana innovation challenge, awarded 12 start-ups and entrepreneurs within the Western and Ashanti Regions with a matching grant of GH¢1,170,000. Among the receivers of this grant was Mr Jesse Roland Prah of Roland Rice located in the Western Region of Ghana. This funding aspect of the project is aimed at supporting and speeding-up the growth of these Small and Medium-sized Enterprises (SMEs) in the green and circular economy, so they can offer decent, fair and sustainable jobs to youth, women and returning migrants within these regions.
