Uganda Innovation Week is an event that was established with a specific goal in mind; to bring together the startup ecosystem of Uganda. Since 2019, Startup Uganda, an association of Entrepreneurial Support Organisations, has brought together startups and innovators, potential investors, public & private sector partners, thought leaders and pacesetters to showcase, discover and engage. The event this year promises more inclusivity, a wider reach and a general country-wide movement
Despite the level of growth of the startup ecosystem here in Uganda, there are still a number of gaps to bridge in order to ensure the development of viable, market-ready enterprises and the ability of relevant stakeholders to adequately support said enterprises. The three-day event will identify some of these missing links and facilitate conversation around possible ways to eradicate the issues.
