From February 27-March 1, the Hub and Open Capital Advisers (OCA) held a Uganda launch for their two-year project designed to increase regional exports and investments through tailored business support. The Hub and OCA met with representatives from Uganda Manufacturers Association and with representatives from small and medium-sized enterprises to assess their suitability for the program. The OCA/Hub “Tailored Business Support Program” supports SMEs to become more investment- and export-ready.
Participants in the launch welcomed the initiative and the approach of offering business support customized to their individual businesses.
"We were very happy to meet with a number of trade organizations as well as individual businesses in Kampala during the launch period, and look forward to meeting more, in the hopes of identifying SMEs with a particular set of challenges that the program can solve, " said Open Capital Advisors Project Lead, Holden Bonwit.
“The Hub’s and Open Capital export and investment readiness program helps bridge a much needed gap,” said Managing Director for Arapapa Ms. Santa Anzo
