WE BELIEVE THAT INNOVATION DRIVES ENTREPRENEURSHIP AND ACHIEVEMENT.
We run very specialized labs which are the destination for BIG IDEAS in Fintech, Media, Climate, Agriculture, Education Health and Diversity.
We work with entrepreneurs at all levels from ideation to commercialization.
We do this through specialised programs designed at giving 360 support to entrepreneurs.
The Village is a destination for ideas. We purpose to deliberately grow innovation by putting in place a platform that challenges assumption, ignites thought and questions status quo. Through entrepreneurship and innovation, we seek to assume major responsibility for the economic, social and cultural vitality of the communities
The Innovation Village is a logical outcome of the current challenges facing the social economic status of Uganda. The Village was conceptualized out of a series conversations that converged thought leaders from the public, academia and captains of business & industry as one force for good at the annual CEO Summit of 2012
Amidst the multiple social economic challenges, The Village is our response focused on creating a new reality across different sectors of the economy. The village will deploy the right motivations to converge the public, academia and captains of business & industry in a combined effort that leverages their independent interests towards achievement of a common goal.
At the backdrop of Uganda being named as the most entrepreneurial country in the world, The Innovation Village offers the next step to cement this recognition through offering
1. A MOONSHOT factory designed to be a tech Launchpad for various startups leveraged on a sharing economy.
2. A bureau to extend the boundaries of research and knowledge within critical growth sectors.
3. A challenge driven accelerator to build Uganda’s biggest creative playground by getting startups to focus on our biggest challenges
Our accelerator programs are a convergence of different fora. We bring together ideas with paralleled
resources and experiences to best support entrepreneurs and their companies by inclusion in:
“We are very pleased with our new brand identity and the way The Innovation Village conducts its training. It has been a great experience growing with them.”
