At GhanaStartups.org, we solve problems and/or provide actionable business solutions and not interested in talkshops. Almost all enquiries and customer relations are handled remotely via email, whatsapp or phone call, but below are guidelines for scheduling an in-person meeting at any of our office premises, where applicable and/or necessary.
In enforcing our 'No Thoroughfare Policy' at any of our office premises and in line with The DCANS Group (TDG) Limited's (parent company of GhanaStartups.org) shared resources policies and operational efficiency practices, all in-person meetings at any of our office locations are strictly by appointment (for reasons not just limited to lack of prior notice, but unavailability of qualified personnel with your unscheduled office visit). If you turn up at any of the offices above without an appointment, you would simply be denied entry and/or turned away.
Our preference for the suburbs over the cities is deliberate, as our operations are never negatively impacted by our unique locations (thanks to advancement in technology). Our existing clients and/or qualified target customers or users cooperate accordingly.

Using Our offices
Note that in-person appointments are currently restricted to existing customers only, and on issues that cannot be resolved via remote digital channels. Our physical locations are strictly for backoffice duties and other complimentary in-person settings (training for existing customers, scheduled events, etc) and not a 9 to 5 hang out.
In line with the group's long term capex strategy, the offices above and all future allocated offices are group-owned and office spaces are shared among The DCANS Group and its subsidiaries including (but not limited to):
and hence our offices:
- Cannot be used for making enquiries. You can use our email, social media page (including whatsapp for all enquiries).
- Cannot be used to make payments. We do not accept or use physical cash in any of our transactions. You can use existing banking and payment options with built-in customer protection measures
If you turn up at any of the offices above without an appointment, you would simply be denied entry and/or turned away.
Work from Anywhere (incl Home Offices)
A good number of our staff are working from home and even in some circumstances out of Ghana and in-person meetings may not always be possible. No in-person meetings take place in the private homes of our staff. Partner freelancers worker from anywhere across the globe, working remotely across eight time zones.
If we need to schedule any in-person meeting and where possible, it can only take place in any of the above offices and not in the private homes or any of our staff.
Non Deposit Taking & No Upfront Fees
Our services including lending, investments does not come with any upfront fees and hence does not carry any risk to the user. Our hosting services incorporates the same/similar safe payment systems that exist in the industry worldwide, that also has customer protection in-built.
We do not transact in physical cash for any of our services. All funding repayments are done electronically via acceptable payment methods.
If you are fixated with the old way of doing business or things in general, this service may not be for you. We don't remember anyone taking a flight to go pay for a domain name or web hosting. Have you?
No Talkshop. No Mere Talk. No Idle Talk. Purposeful Meetings Only.
With advancement in technology and in this era of global pandemic, we do not expect startups and new businesses that should lead the economic recovery of the republic to be antiquated in their approach and thinking, to still rely on inefficient traditional ways of doing things, as it's evident in the reasons for asking for a meeting almost always being irrelevant, trivial and useless (excuse our french).
We do not have an open door policy. To schedule an appointment, you need to state the purpose of such an in-person meeting. If it can be resolved remotely, we would not schedule any appointment and ask you to use our digital channels.
This arrangement will however be reviewed in the course of 2021 and when issues surround Coronavirus (Covid-19) make them feasible for frequent relevant in-person meetings.
You don't have to use our services if you disagree with how we operate or any of the arrangements above.
