The CEO and founder of Quick Angels Limited and Quick Credit was recently hosted by the Harvard Business School, where he led discussions on investment opportunities in Africa and the impact on the continent.
Richard Nii Armah Quaye was last week invited by the Entrepreneurship Through Acquisition (ETA), a business club at Harvard Business School, to speak at their 5th annual conference on the theme “Opportunities early-career business leaders should search for, to acquire and operate their own companies.”
Nii Armah Quaye was tasked to select a critical success case to be on the international search panel from the front lines in Africa.
The conference brought together over 500 young professionals, CEOs and investors from around the world.
Speaking at the forum, Nii Armah Quaye was elated for the opportunity to share the success story of the business module of his angel investor company, Quick Angels to a global audience although it is just a year old since its launch in Ghana.
He said, his vision is for the company the first angel investor in Ghana, to impact many lives in Ghana and beyond in the shortest time possible.
“We hope to travel even farther to project equity financing as an alternative to debt financing and also the name of Ghana to the world, the entrepreneur and philanthropist stated.
Quick Angels Limited is the first formal and institutionalised Angel Investor Company in Ghana.
It is established primarily to provide equity financing or funding to startups, potential and existing entrepreneurs and persons with smart business ideas but lack funding to begin.
Apart from reaching out to existing and potential entrepreneurs, the organisation has also been educating members of the public on Angel Investing and Equity Financing.
