Two Ghanaians make Forbe’s under 30 Africa's best young entrepreneurs

Two Ghanaians have been named in Forbes Magazine’s 30 best young entrepreneurs under age 30 in Africa.

23 year old Sandra Appiah and 28 year old Isaac Boateng are co-founders of a New York city-based new media company called Face2Face Africa.

Forbes enlisted an independent panel of 12 judges to identify Africans below 30 years who are making the most dramatic impact across the continent and Sandra Appiah and Isaac Boateng’s company made the cut.

Apart from the Ghanaians, the list included about 7 South Africans, 7 Kenyan’s, and 4 Nigerians.

Malawi, Tanzania, Congo, Uganda and Cameroon and Zimbabwe all had one each.

The activities of these young African entrepreneurs cut across Real Estate, Financial Services, Manufacturing, Media, Tech, Green tech, Healthcare, Agriculture and Fashion.

Face2Face Africa, run by Sandra Appiah and Isaac Boateng has three divisions: an outfit that publishes a magazine which explores African development, culture, entertainment and fashion, an events business and a thriving website.
