Struggling with the Drastic Corona Measures in Northern Uganda
High Flyers is a three-year program and was launched in northern Uganda to support existing agripreneurs through the establishment of strong structures that facilitate sustainable business growth. The program is implemented in Nebbi and Lira districts by ICCO Cooperation in partnership with Youth Business International (YBI) and Enterprise Uganda.
Uganda has a mixed picture of entrepreneurship, with the country regularly ranked among the top three most enterprising nations in the world.
There are increasing number of programmes to support start-ups in East Africa, but the businesses created are often:
For all these reasons, ICCO will support the young entrepreneurs with an existing agri-business with a comprehensive package of Business Development Services, including training, coaching, long-term mentorship and financial linkage support.
The High Flyers program supports 1,000 young entrepreneurs between 18-35 years with an existing agribusiness in Nebbi district and Lango sub-region in Uganda to scale up sustainable businesses and drive waged job creation in local communities.
The program builds on scaling and further enhancing validated approaches in the provision of growth-oriented business development support to young entrepreneurs in Uganda. It also leverages partnerships with financial entities and mentorships with established agripreneurs to increase entrepreneurs’ knowledge and skills in commercial agriculture and boost their potential to access longer-term youth entrepreneurship loan products and expand to new markets.
Young entrepreneurs (18 – 35 years) with an agri-business in Lira district are invited to apply!
Deadline: Thursday 30th of April 2020 5pm EAT
