Impact Investment Trip Uganda | BiD Network

Explore the pearl of Africa and meet its promising entrepreneurs

Are you interested in investing in Uganda? Join our upcoming investor trip from 9 – 13 October 2017. In this five-day investor trip we offer potential investors the opportunity to visit a number of pre-selected and well-prepared businesses from BiD Network’s portfolio. The trip also provides you the opportunity to meet with other stakeholders in the investment environment, including the Uganda Investment Authority, Dutch embassy, local investors and banks. Moreover, it enables you to share knowledge and possibly co-invest with other like-minded investors.

The businesses
The selected businesses operate in different sectors, including agriculture, health, renewable energy and financial services. They have one common denominator: they are high-potential and all have a positive impact on their communities, be it via job creation or a product or service that makes life better or easier. All businesses have been selected based on their annual turnover (>$100,000), proof of market, the scalability of their business model and the management capacities of the entrepreneurial team. All businesses have audited financial statements.

Uganda
Uganda is an increasingly attractive destination for foreign investments. With a highly liberalized economy, free movement of capital to and from the country and an average GDP growth of 5.5% per year (World Bank), Uganda is the perfect place to explore investment opportunities first-hand. 

Why you should join:

  • Unique opportunity to personally meet Ugandan entrepreneurs and visit their venues
  • Opportunity to create a positive impact on Ugandan society 
  • Network, and potentially co-invest, with a group of like-minded investors
  • Meet other stakeholders in the investment environment of Uganda

The all-in costs of the investor trip are € 3,000*. This includes all accommodation, logistics, and all meals, but excludes flights and VAT. Early bird registration for € 2,500 is available until July 15.
