Checking in with former ‘softie Patrick Awuah

I had coffee the other day with Patrick Awuah, the former Microsoftie who started a private university in his native Ghana.

Patrick was in town visiting with supporters of Ashesi University, which has graduated its first class and is approaching the financial breakeven point. The school is now in leased buildings in Accra but it owns some land, and Patrick is looking for donors to fund campus construction.

But we also talked about the World Cup. Patrick said there were televisions at the school where students and faculty could watch the games — along with everyone else in Accra. When Ghana scored, he could hear a roar as the whole city cheered at once.
