Episode 24: How a Young Ghanaian founded a platform that’s changing the way Africans Study
As a young African who studied in the US and his home country, Ghana, just like many other Africans in the Diaspora, Ato Bentsi-Enchill saw the differences in education style among the two countries and decided to take action. At his school’s Business Plan competition, Ato pitched the idea of a platform providing detailed answers to Africans in order to help them understand the Why behind every answer. His drive to make his platform come alive has taken him to win many competitions including the Tony Elumelu Foundation and the Georgetown African Conference Pitch Competition.
Ato is the co-founder of RevisionPrep, a gamified online social learning tool that offers an alternative to traditional exam preparation in Ghanaian Junior High Schools for the national Basic Education Certificate Examination.
In this episode, we touched on his journey as a Student/Entrepreneur, how he manages his company from the US given that his customer base is in Ghana, and his strategy to scale the business within other countries.
