This year's Inspiration Weekend started off with a collaborative event with a leadership group of the impact travelers called “Ghana to the Moon” a business and technology conference with the initiative of creating a pipeline for recruitment, training, certifications and provisions of resources for development. As a part of a 2 day competition for $1000 to be awarded to a start up business, the participants from were trained and provided instructions of developing a pitch for a business proposal for which they will present and be judged by panelists along with investors amongst the audience. Some of the participants and business startups were also provided with investments for their products and businesses. The participants are sent weekly to monthly newsletters of what's in store for the next conference as well as resources on training, jobs, and programs for which they can apply. We are currently with some of the  members of the winning group on a startup application.
