In November and December 2017, the most creative and inspiring teams from all over Accra would converge at Ashesi University where they would design and pitch a system for the Ministry of Trade. The platform would enable buyers (large scale contractors and LSE’s) to engage suppliers (sub-contractors and SME’s) in an exchange arrangement that ensures that buyer needs are met while supplier capacity is enabled. Attractive cash prizes and opportunities up for grabs.

Problem: A division of the Ministry of Trade is designing a platform to enable buyers (large scale contractors and LSE’s) to engage suppliers (sub-contractors and SME’s) in an exchange arrangement that ensures that buyer needs are met while supplier capacity is enabled
Real world example:
Your task will be to use blockchain or any other applicable technology to design this system and develop a concept solution for how the platform would work.
Your solution concept should address the following if possible:
A means of determining capacities and needs of both suppliers and buyers
A way to allow subcontractors to combine to meet contract requirements
A means of ensuring there is significant local content input
A means of interfacing the platform with other buyer supplier platforms
A means of determining the volume of business transactions, jobs create and capacities built
Register and submit your concept solution. Concept solution should include a zip file with the following:
- Flow chart showing steps solution goes through
- Maximum 1000-word document explaining your solution and how applicable technology would be used to achieve it. Images and diagrams that help illustrate your point are very helpful.
