Barcamp Koforidua is organized primarily by the GhanaThink Foundation, an NGO based both in Ghana and the USA, which has successfully organized 26 BarCamps in Ghana. 

+Barcamp Koforidua will be the very first Barcamp in Koforidua, making it the 10th location in Ghana. We would discuss the present state of Koforidua, its emerging growth and how it will be affected by many projects happening around it - Antartic, Ejisu - Oyoko Highway, etc. We would also discuss how Koforidua and its surrounding areas can be positively affected by youth.

Barcamp Koforidua aims to assemble Koforidua stakeholders to network, build a supportive enterprising community and give birth to lasting professional partnerships. It will feature many young inspirational people based in and outside Koforidua. Some of the confirmed resource personnel are Whit Alexander (Burro), +Nkansah Rexford (PWMGH), Dr. Paa Kofi Tinagyei, Vivian Amoako-Atta (Beadmaker), Klexx Maxwell Justice (Vision FM), Mary B Wilson (ANU Lecturer), amongst others.
