GrowthAfrica ran a successful business accelerator programme in Uganda for the 4th consecutive year with eight audacious ventures who were selected based on their degree of innovation in solving key challenges through the products or services provided, the strength and ambition of the founders, their teams and potential to scale.
The ventures have concluded the intensive first 6 months of the accelerator programme where they learnt how to craft strategies that can aid them in the execution of their 3-year growth plans. The tools we provided them were great resources in guiding them to capture learnings and slowly refine their business models.
The entrepreneurs also had the opportunity to interact with influential speakers such as Ron Kawarama, CEO, Jumia, Uganda, Ivan Oboth, Cocacola Sales Director, Uganda and Maxime Dieudonne, Co-Founder, SafeBoda, Uganda.
Here is a brief on the ventures:
