Uganda: Youth Startup Academy in Africa

    Información general


    The Youth Startup Academy Uganda project, financed by the Korea SMEs and Startups Agency (KOSME), aims to incubate 1,000 young entrepreneurs by 2024. To fulfil this goal, the project will adapt and implement the Korean Youth Startup Academy programme, the most successful Korean startup incubation and acceleration programme. The project will partner with an existing incubation hub in Kampala, and set-up YSA in the hub by upgrading infrastructure and technical portfolio to support entrepreneurs. Throughout the project term, the project will run 4 intakes of entrepreneurs, and will provide training, mentoring and consulting services. For the implementation, the project will partner with the Government of Uganda (i.e. Ministry of ICT, Ministry of Trade, and the National Information Techonology Authority of Uganda), the Korean Government (Ministry of SME and Startups, KOSME) and various agents in the Korean startup ecosystem.
