Over the last few weeks we trained Ugandan secondary school students on how they can startup businesses addressing unique challenges. In teams of three, they all created prototypes and piloted their business getting feedback from customers about their products and services.
Through a pitching competition, the best team won a trip to Germany for internship. The panel of Judges included experienced professionals like Brian Mugisha Brian Founder Golden Bees Ltd, Alice Karugaba Founder Nina Interiors, Sarah Kyejjusa Deputy Director Makerere University Business School Entrepreneurship center and Julius Magala Consultant from United Nations Capital Development Fund.
This was accomplished in partnership with Goethe Institut.
