Having starting a business consulting firm at a point in his life when he was dejected, crashed and
unfairly fired from a bank job, with nothing but a borrowed laptop in Ghana, Mr. Derrick S.
Vormawor who describes himself as the young man from nowhere God is taking somewhere, runs
Platinum Africa Solutions Limited which currently helps businesses to strategize, organize and
globalize in Africa. Now the firm consults for businesses in Ghana, Nigeria, USA, Israel,etc with
a new branch starting in Kenya. He has been featured in a lot of public speaking events where he’s
inspired other people in business and with his story.
Presently at age 24, he is recognised beyond Ghana for his ability to develop strategic business
plans and strategies which have helped clients to receive over USD 4 million in funding to expand
and still counting. He also serves as a corporate trainer and has given practical trainings in
Business, Customer Service, Sales and Marketing to thousands of people through onsite and online
Derrick is again the creator and host of The Business Startup Clinic by Platinum Africa Solutions
Ltd., a multi-national event which has by far hosted startup founders and aspiring entrepreneurs
from different countries to share practical business strategies, inspire and inform a new generation
of business gladiators. He again started a new initiative for entrepreneurs and business leaders
called “Strategies With Derrick” which sold out during it’s maiden edition in Ghana on 6th
It is simply amazing listening to Derrick share his story as a person; from the point of being
dejected and rejected to a point of rising up to become one of the few true entrepreneurs from
Ghana making Africa proud, one has no option than to believe that, we can all achieve what we
want to become in life by staying true to our purpose and trusting in God through the process.
In 2016, he was named among Top 100 Student Entrepreneurs in Ghana by TANOE and in 2017
his firm was nominated for Premium Bank Ghana Startup Awards and nominated for Best
Consultancy and Professional Services in The 2017 40 under 40 Awards Ghana. Upon recently
graduating with a BSc. Banking & Finance from University of Professional Studies Accra, Derrick
is presently an MBA International Business candidate of The Technical University of
Freiberg,Germany. One interesting thing about what Derrick says about these awards is that; “I
don’t crave to win awards, as the greatest award I have ever won was the win over my fears.
That’s enough to last me a lifetime ad keep me going”
His dream is to become a path through which a lot of viable and profitable businesses will emerge,
be sustained and grow in Africa. His company’s services include business strategy development,
business plan development, business proposal development, market research, products
development, corporate training, business investment consulting, corporate branding and The
Business Startup Clinic.
Derrick has his first book reel released online called TESTING THE PAINT (growing into the role
of The CEO) which is impacting a lot of lives within and outside Africa. He is presently in Nairobi,
Kenya to host the East-African edition of The Business Startup Clinic which comes off on
Wednesday, 17th January, 2018 at 6pm and at The Kijiji-Ngong Lane, Nairobi-Kenya. The event is
being attended by both existing and aspiring entrepreneurs, who want to start new businesses and
who want to scale up their already existing ventures, respectively. He believes in lifting others up
and that, at times all we need is a word to become more and do more. To sign up for the event, click
