KAMPALA IMPACT DAY
31st March 2021
MacKinnon Suites, 15 Mackinnon Rd, Kampala
Organizer: OVO (Entrepreneurs For Entrepreneurs)
Entrepreneurs for Entrepreneurs, or OVO, to give it its Dutch acronym, promotes economic growth in African countries by supporting local entrepreneurship. After all, OVO firmly believes that social and sustainable businesses are a key driving force in terms of raising the local population’s living standards. On the one hand, OVO focuses on financing sustainable business initiatives. Essentially, more financial strength results in faster growth. On the other hand, OVO attaches great importance to the transfer of knowledge between Belgian companies and entrepreneurs. This can take the form of business management support as well as technical support. To this end, OVO is developing an expertise network.
