Prince Boadu (Forbes Africa 30 under 30 Class of 2016).
A rockstar in the fields of social and technological entrepreneurship, a team player and committed supporter of causes he believes in, Prince Boadu from Ghana was recently named a member of the Forbes Africa 30 under 30 Class of 2016. A couple quotes from Forbes in their feature read as follows;
“This is the most important list of the year for FORBES AFRICA. If one young African reads it and is inspired enough to start a business it has done its job,” says Chris Bishop, Managing Editor of FORBES AFRICA.”
“This has been a very long but interesting journey. I think I am more excited about the list a little more than the entrepreneurs. I have become attached to each and every one of them because the vetting process was so long and I had to talk to them often. I am confident they are the billionaires of tomorrow. Peruse them, argue over them and follow their journeys. We find this list exciting, thought provoking and forward looking,” says Mangena of FORBES AFRICA.”
