Equality, trust and value creation
This program is designed around equality, trust and value creation for all participants. Not only you will share your skills and experiences, you will also get many insights from the Ugandan business-owners. The majority of the entrepreneurs have to deal with a lack of resources, no options to get a bank loan and have to be very creative in finding ways to start and run their company. What can you learn from them and how can you implement this in your own business?
To be able to create a relationship of equality and trust, many activities will be with all the entrepreneurs together. We believe that mutual understanding is created during fun activities and in an informal setting and not just with the focus on business. However, there are obviously also moments for free time and the freedom to go for lunch or dinner by yourself. Or to explore the places we visit.
Facilities and location
We will stay in our own house, which is only a 5-minute walk away from Acacia Mall, the cities largest shopping mall. You won’t find the authentic Ugandan lifestyle here, but you will find everything you might miss when being away from home. There are a big supermarket, lovely coffee places and nice restaurants.
