Yaw Owusu

Chief Executive Officer
Ghana Cyber Group, Inc.


Yaw Owusu founded Ghana Cyber Group in 1999 to promote technology investments in Ghana and facilitate the branding of Ghana’s growing information technology and business processing outsourcing industry. In 2002, Mr. Owusu was appointed to the international advisory board of the Digital Partners, which entered into a merger with the Seattle, Washington-based Grameen Technology Center in 2005. Yaw Owusu founded Gateway Innovations in Accra, Ghana in 2006. The company finalized a joint-ventured deal in 2007 with private partners in Ghana, South Africa and the United States to develop Ghana Cyber City—an upscale business and innovation venture designed to provide high tech office space, incubate startup firms, commercialize clients’ products and services, sell broadband wireless internet service and process offshore IT services. Mr. Owusu worked in Washington, DC for General Electric and IBM as programmer analyst for 5 years and moved to New York to join Goldman Sachs Investment Banking Technology Group. He enrolled in the Executive MBA program at Columbia Business School from 2001 to 2002. He completed his undergraduate studies in Mathematics and Economics at Albright College in Pennsylvania.
