 Accra, Aug. 1, GNA – Dr Tralance Addy, an Entrepreneur, on Thursday suggested that students should be mentored at the early stages of their lives so that they could translate knowledge into the national development agenda.

Dr Addy, Executive Director of the Stanford Institute for Innovation in Developing Economies (SEED), said it took more efforts and time to unlock the creative potentials of people recruited in the workforce than it was in the classroom.
He was speaking to journalists in Accra on the fourth day of a week-long Community Outreach Programme rolled out by SEED.
