Star 100 is a Ghana-focused diaspora network, based in London. It was founded in the UK in June 2004 with the aim of connecting 100 likeminded professionals - hence the name.
Today we have some 900 registered members.
Our members cover a wide range of professions from Finance, Management Consultancy, Law, Media and Entertainment to Technology, Civil Engineering and Social Work.
Our aims are to provide opportunities for members to:
- network online and offline, for social and business purposes,
- develop their personal and career skills,
- learn about Ghana's history, culture, politics and economics,
- give back to and create links with Ghana.
The backbone of the group is our networking meet-ups which take place in London.
Our meet-ups range from unstructured socials in a bar/restaurant to more structured enhanced meet-ups such as talks and workshops. To date we have played host to Tutu Agyare, Nicole Amarteifio, Dr. Sylvia Anie, Matthew Boadu Adjei, Ernest Hanson, Todd Holcombe, Elikem Nutifafa Kuenyehia, Jerry Parkes, Ade Sawyerr, William Tewiah, Seth Tandoh, Bright Simons, Tom Vernon, Prof. John Sutton, Lesley ‘Super’ Sackey, Prof. George Ayittey, Herman Chinery-Hesse, Frances Williams, Razia Khan, Prof. Rick van der Ploeg, Baff Akoto, Prof. Nana Apt, Prof. Eddie Obeng, June Milne, Dr. Tweneboah, Dr. Spio Garbrah and Nana Akufo-Addo.
