Samuel Kwame Boadu realized that acting, as a middleman for companies and individuals was a very costly and risky endeavor especially when sources decide to act another way (run away with customers money).

Samuel also Knew he needed capital to pump into his vision so he went back to work an 8-5 job whiles building his empire. He worked and consulted for Firms like Beige Capital (now CBG), Dalex Finance (Loans Department), Uniagents (Contract to recruit students), Freights Masters Shipping Agency and Unicaf (Helping with Partial Scholarships). His journey to work whiles bootstrapping his vision was something he needed to build his firm.

Expanding the Empire

Samuel Kwame Boadu has always reinvested the majority of his profits back into his businesses—one reason the company has grown so much since its inception.

During an interview at TVXYZ, Samuel Kwame Boadu explained, ‘‘We [SamBoad Business Group Limited] are not doing like other Africans who keep most of their money in the bank. We do not keep money in the bank.

We fully invest whatever we have and we keep on investing into other departments whiles we continue to create jobs. Until I see a lot of people getting employed through SamBoad, I will buy more assets to run the business than buy a vehicle to live lavish lifestyle’’

Unlike many wealthy Ghanaians who made their fortune in oil, real estate etc., Samuel Kwame Boadu initially chose to go down a different path, but he has since entered the service providing, media and logistics industry.

Notably, SamBoad Foundation began partnering with GirlyTech to help young girls learn more about STEM, Leela’s Foundation to help build schools in rural communities and the SamBoad “Think Beyond your Qualification” Initiative that helped train over 1000 students in a “Senior High School Tour”
