August Update: Regulatory Clearance, GSBI Fellowship and SL@B
Key Milestone Achieved: Regulatory Approval in Ghana
Exactly one month after we received our regulatory approval in Kenya, we received our regulatory approval in Ghana. These regulatory approvals are a testament to Hemafuse and the hard and diligent work of our team.
With two regulatory approvals achieved, we now have the opportunity to secure purchase orders in two key markets. Ghana is the launching point for the West African market while Kenya is the launching point for the East African market. Once we secure our next round of funding we will be well positioned to enter these two markets and then scale rapidly!
