Another Barcamp Cape Coast chapter starts with #bccapecoast 2015

This year, we shall have our 5th +Barcamp Cape Coast. It's been great to see what has emerged out of Barcamps in Cape Coast these 5 years. There are startups like +Ahonya.com which now has the +Ahonyabid product. There's the inspiration for +Tech Needs Girls Gh by +regina agyare. But I especially love the growth of people like +kofi yeboah +Kobe Subramaniam +William Osilaja Boampong and +francis kumadoh. The first two are joined by +Rachel Hormeku (also from #Bccapecoast), +Senam Aseye Bridget and +Leonard Hagan to lead the +Barcamp Ghana program in Ghana. With this next theme around 'Equipping the Youth to plan their future today', we at the +GhanaThink Foundation are on course to do more.

Barcamp Cape Coast 2015 is on September 12th at the University of Cape Coast. The organizing team is made up of +Papa Baffoe Aikins +Mantey Joshua +Wilson Seyram Ameamu +sampson oboh +Ansaba Amoah +Kwesi Quagraine and some other volunteers. I'm excited for this event, as always. Especially because I get to be in Elmina, my hometown. Join us there to learn, share and network. Hoping that we congregate and continue network a lot of driven young people based in Cape Coast and beyond. If you can't join us in person, stay tuned to the #bccapecoast hashtag.
