Development Bank Ghana Introduces ‘DBG Connect’

In line with its vision of propelling growth of Ghana’s private sector, the Development Bank Ghana (DBG) has introduced DBG Connect; a digital platform for thought-provoking discussions with industry leaders, experts and key stakeholders on pivotal themes of financial and economic transformation. It is a platform where ideas converge, where knowledge is shared and where sustainable solutions are generated.

DBG’s mandate includes fostering strong partnerships to finance Small and Medium Enterprises (SMEs), creation of jobs and capacity building. Driven by this mandate, the DBG Connect platform was launched to stimulate conversations that will generate right interventions to drive financial transformation of businesses in Ghana. DBG Connect is structured on a podcast format. Discussions are moderated by a host who engages panelists on in-depth conversations on topical issues like challenges and opportunities in agriculture, leveraging of technology to support industry, policy advocacy and agricultural financing, etc. The video version of DBG Connect is available on the DBG’s YouTube channel (@DevelopmentBankGhana) whiles the audio version is available on online streaming platforms including Spotify, Apple Podcasts and Google Podcast.

Touching on the relevance of the initiative, K. Duker, Chief Executive Officer of DBG mentioned that the challenges faced by businesses, especially SMEs, include lack of access to capital, regulatory bottlenecks, little or no capacity building. He stated that unfortunately there is no one person with the answer to all these challenges and therefore called for collaboration from all captains of industry and leaders of institutions to dialogue and find sustainable solutions to the challenges. “There is a complex problem out there and there is no one messiah, but the fact that we are beginning to have these discussions is so important because all these issues can be resolved by people collaborating. I urge all who are interested in this country’s economic transformation to watch every episode of DBG Connect.

DBG Connect can be accessed on DBG’s official youtube channel: @developmentbankghana. For more information, kindly check out DBG’s social media accounts via the following handles:
