Dr. Partick Awuah!

Patrick Awuah

How do you think of Africa?

What is wrong in Africa?

Dr. Patrick Awuah, an engineering and economics graduate of Swarthmore College as well as a graduate of UC Berkeley’s Haas School of Business and a former Microsoft Program Manager, decided to ask these questions to himself and to those in Ghana, the place where he grew up.

The answer he found: Leadership.

With this discovery, Dr. Awuah decided to do something about leadership in Africa and he recognized the opportunity to do so through education.

Soon after, he founded, Ashesi University, which educates students with critical thinking and ethical courage as the foundation of each lesson.

In 2010, Dr. Awuah was ranked as one of the top 100 most creative people in business by Fast Company and today, Ashesi University moves into its 11th year.

Please join SEED and the rest of Elon’s entrepreneurial community in welcoming Dr. Patrick Awuah to Burlington, NC on February 27th, 2014 at 5:00PM in the LaRose Digital Theater on Elon University’s Campus. 

We will not only be given a chance to hear him speak but we will be given the opportunity to ask questions and engage with someone who embodies the idea of social entrepreneurship.
