HapaSpace was founded in 2016 as part of the response to assist young adults in the city of Kumasi to build and grow start-ups, develop skills in STEM (Science, technology, engineering, and Maths), and offer a co-working space. The organization supports the entire entrepreneurship journey from idea generation, pre-seed funding to business growth and scaling. HapaSpace uses ideation and 5 days booth camps for business creation, incubation programs for early-stage businesses, and acceleration programs for post-revenue businesses.
HapaSpace has three main categories of services :
- Capacity and skills development through workshops, specialised trainings, meetups, mentorship, incubation and acceleration programmes.
- Non-Cash support such as office space, internet access, provision of volunteers, events and networking opportunities.
- Funding opportunities mainly through collaboration with Venture capitals, Angel investors and prizes from competitions.
