Small and Medium Enterprises (SMEs) play a critical role in Ghana’s socio-economic growth. They represent over 80% of enterprises in the Ghanaian market. However, despite the significant role they play in the development of their communities and the economy, SMEs face a number of key challenges that make it difficult for them to scale up sustainably.
MEST Scale is an acceleration program designed by MEST, in partnership with the Mastercard Foundation, that partners with leaders of high growth startups and innovative technology businesses that are ready to position their ventures for scaling. The program works with businesses to strengthen their operations, address key technology gaps, address capital linkages and increase their capacity to scale.
