I am Ivy Appiah, the CEO of Tiwajo Industry Limited. I am a biochemist with 10 years experience in product formulations both in food and cosmetic development. I developed a natural cosmetic range called “paridox” and has continuously improved the product formulation since 2010.
I have a strong passion to build entrepreneurs especially women entrepreneurs through training for them to start and grow their own businesses. I have always believed that entrepreneurship is the key to national development and is linked to the better Ghana we all seek.
I know how to start small and grow because I am a living testimony to that hence i believe i can help women to re-write their stories from a small beginning.
Why you should listen
I have a practical story to share with the world so They can believe that you can actually start a business with just your passion and what you have.
I never borrowed money to start my business but Just made good use of what I had at that time. Since then it has taught me to move anyway with or without support given me strategies to fund the business with the help of my customers. I want to tell the world that difficult times creates more opportunities for entrepreneurs
