He said “opportunities are leveraged when entrepreneurs partner with like-minded people” and that the new order in the global space necessitated that young men and women with ambitions in the digital and e-transact space came together and join hands for progress.
Mr Mawutor, a Tech leader with over 18 years of experience in creating, building and scaling businesses in the UK Fin Tech sector stated this at the 10th edition of the Tech in Ghana conference which opened at the Accra Digital Centre yesterday.
The two-day high-tech-level conference is a special event facility with contemporary, professional atmosphere for leaders, investors and influencers in the financial digital space aimed among others, to strengthen the bourgeoning Tech eco-system in Ghana.
