Ms. Davisha L. Johnson is The First African American Woman to Create Small Business Investment Tour in West AfricaTour in West Africa
Born in the early 1980s, Ms. Davisha L. Johnson operates many successful businesses in the U.S. and has recently taken her business model to the Global Marketplace by establishing the Ghana Investment Tour.
She embraced globalization as a champion of the Diaspora’s black millennials in doing business in Africa. Her investment tour is not like anything of its kind because it focuses on African Americans doing business with Ghanaians as Ms. Johnson says “I’m building a black ecosystem globally so we can bridge the gap and create economic stability for our own people here and abroad through small business.”
Ms. Johnson has traveled through three African countries over the past eight months and visited Ghana twice. After her first 10-day visit back in March of this year, she created the tour on the flight back to the U.S. and has just successfully completed the first tour this past weekend where an African American man who is also a millennial with cyber security background from Atlanta, Georgia took part in the tour and left Ghana investing in 4 different businesses.
“Small Medium Enterprises are the life blood of any stable economic base and with the Year of Return initiative of Ghana’s President Nana Akufo-Addo and the amount of potential growth, business-friendliness and determination to have a’ Plan B,’ Ghana is the perfect place,” says Johnson. The Ghana Investment Tour takes up to 10 black investors from anywhere in the world to Ghana to invest with Ghanaian business owners, including even startups, in small to medium-sized businesses.
