Digitalisation in Ghana: Call for Expressions of Interest launched

Online survey for entities active in Ghana that seek potential grants to co-finance their investment in digitalisation projects.

If your company or the public entity that you are representing is active in the field of digital transformation, or if you are planning to invest in it, you are invited to participate in this Call for Expressions of Interest. The online survey is open from 8 to 26 November 2021.

This Call for Expressions of Interest by the facility Investing for Employment (IFE) is targeting companies and public entities including, but not limited to:

  • Firms from the technology sector with high innovation and scalability potential
  • Hubs or platforms supporting firms in their digitalisation strategy through technical support, training and/or fundraising guidance
  • Firms or organisations aiming to transform their business models by digitalising processes, products, value chains or delivery channels as a prerequisite for further expansion
  • Providers of professional education aiming to expand the provision of digital skills required for the labour market (e.g., app development, server administration)
  • Public sector bodies aiming to address local digital infrastructure deficiencies or expand digital public services to improve the conditions for firms relying on such infrastructure

The information received regarding the specific type and size of digitalisation investments, job creation potential etc. will offer IFE valuable information to tailor its potential subsequent Call for
Proposals in a manner that properly addresses the needs and interest of potential project partners. The launch of the Call for Proposals is planned for the first quarter of 2022.

The Call for Expressions of Interest is intended to (a) gather information on interested entities and
(b) gather information on the entity's investment idea in digitalisation.

Digitalisation projects which IFE could potentially fund would need to be operationally viable and financially sustainable. The execution of the digitalisation investment until commencement of operation should not exceed 18 months. In alignment with the IFE overarching objective, the eligible digitalisation projects need to also contribute to significant creation of jobs – at the entity of the project partner or additionally also at other entities (multiplier effect).
