1: For the benefit of those who might know not you, Who is Mr. Moses Arthur?
Moses B. Arthur is a young daring Ghanaian totally out of his comfort zone living his epic vision for Africa. As a serial entrepreneur that he is, he runs a digital marketing and branding firm called City Broadcast Ltd. A For-Profit social enterprise called Entrepreneurship Hub Africa that organizes the annual African Entrepreneurship and Innovation Summit. He believes strongly that Entrepreneurship and Innovation is the future of the continent and it can make the continent great again.
Moses started his entrepreneurial journey in his sophomore year in the university when he started his first business called Parah Deliveries and Coinbase (a company that was to be centered on deliveries and a cryptocurrency called Bitcoin) but the business failed due to lack of tenacity and boldness to run and dominate the sector. Two years after with burning passion for the marketing space, he started a company called City Broadcast which he least knew would rise to become one of the most sort after digital marketing and branding firms in the country. And it has just been a journey of God’s goodness ever since.
