Aspen Network of Development Entrepreneurs and Partners release Uganda entrepreneurial ecosystem initiative initial results

The report shares findings and offers recommendations to improve opportunities for entrepreneurs

Kampala, Uganda — September 13, 2018 –– The Aspen Network of Development Entrepreneurs (ANDE) with its partners the Centre for Development Alternatives and Enterprise Uganda today shared the initial findings of the Uganda Entrepreneurial Ecosystem Initiative (UEEI)-Phase I.

This initial assessment identifies the binding constraints to accelerating ecosystem development in Uganda and recommends practical action to bolster entrepreneurial ecosystems in two specific regions: Gulu and Kampala.  The constraints common to both of these entrepreneurial ecosystems include a lack of hands-on management and entrepreneurship education, limited entrepreneurial success stories—such as those that focus on female entrepreneurs—and a significant lack of finance targeted at small and growing businesses.
