KAMPALA – Uganda is one the countries with great ideas and the highest number of entrepreneurs budding up day in day out but unfortunately most of their efforts have ended up in the ruts due to lack of sufficient knowledge, mentorship and skills to sustain their business to strive to greater heights, said Dr. Nataliey Bitature, a Ugandan entrepreneur and Simba Group Chief of Staff.
Dr. Nataliey was on Tuesday, April 21, hosting Business Revolution, a platform that launched their first session with Gerald Otim, the founder of Ensibuuko a Ugandan- based fintech start up to share insights of how his business has kept on float despite the challenges among others.
According to Nataliey, it will be a window of opportunities for the serial energetic youthful entrepreneurs to share and acquire knowledge skills and how to manage their businesses for both small scale and medium seized enterprises (SMES) successfully looking at a global footing.
She revealed that over the last two decades businesses have evolved in Africa from the traditional way of operation to a digitized mode of operation from just having a mere logo to full branding and online presence which cuts across social media platforms, websites to mobile applications as well as shifting from the traditional book keeping and filing to computerized systems.
“It is from that background that we were inspired to build a platform that empowers, motivates and inspires young emerging entrepreneurs in startup businesses.This platform contains content for both small and medium sized enterprise owners passing down knowledge from the older generation to the younger generation,” she added.
In addition, it will encompass various modes of businesses to carter for all fields together with networking spaces and trainings for young entrepreneurs’ various skills in handling and managing their businesses.
