Ghana has high youth unemployment, and young Ghanaians meet many constraints in their effort to build up sustainable businesses. The purpose of this research is to address these constraints and search for ways of turning the constraints into opportunities.
The hypothesis of this research is that adding a focus on means, attitude and enterprising behaviour skills will increase the value of entrepreneurship training.
The study is a design-based research undertaken in collaboration with the local NGO, Youth Empowerment for Life (YEfL). It builds on relevant theory and involves qualitative and quantitative research in Northern Ghana.
The study reveals the five most crucial constraints for young entrepreneurs in Northern Ghana. Moreover, it proposes a new entrepreneurship model and training manual.
