Chief Executive Officer(CEO) of the National Entrepreneurship & Innovation Programme (NEIP), Kofi Ofosu Nkansah, has listed 10 major milestones the NEIP has achieved under his leadership.

The Chief Executive believes that regardless of the achievements made in just two years, more can be done to support young people in the country.

To him, the youth must succeed and that can be achieved if existing Institutions take their mandates seriously and ensure that they meet their KPIs.

The list of projects to transform the lives of the youth includes:

Two years at NEIP. Some of the Programmes are done in fulfilment of the President’s vision of accelerating the creation of entrepreneurs through Innovation. Thanks to my team.
