This PhD project looks at the new generation of female technology entrepreneurs in Ghana and explores the intersection of gender, entrepreneurship and technology. It explores inter alia, the role of class in the digital economy, financing gender-gap, the gendering of tech spaces and digital trade. The methodologies adopted for this study are in-depth life history interviews, ethnographic observations, semi-structured interviews and archival research. I also map out the institutional environment for entrepreneurship in Ghana through structured interviews with all stakeholders including government agencies, NGOs, educational institutions, trade associations, entrepreneurship organisations and development agencies. I conducted field research over a 3-year period from 2016 to 2019.
I am a part-time doctoral candidate funded by a College of Arts and Law Scholarship.
