Seedstars World names church admin app Ghana’s best startup

Global seed-stage startup competition has been making its rounds across the African continent, giving exciting tech startups a chance to pitch on the global stage for a shot at US$500 000 equity investment. After kicking-off in Mozambique, startup winners were announced in South Africa and, soon after, Nigeria.

Now, at Impact Hub Accra, Seedstars World has named Ghana’s church administration app Asoriba the country’s top startup.

Asoriba is described as a web and mobile application that enables effective church administration for leaders, and seamless engagement with members.

Nana Opoku, the CEO of Asoriba, told Seedstars World: “This is completely unexpected for us. We are going to work even harder now to grow our business and impress in Geneva.”
