Together with her partners GoodUp and close the Gap, Women in Technology Uganda (WITU) is hosting The LEAP² Tech Women Challenge Uganda to empower female tech entrepreneurs, women who run tech businesses in Uganda with business support, crowd funding skills and support and a 2000 Euros seed capital.
How does the LEAP² Challenge work?
Are you a female entrepreneur in Uganda who is closing the digital divide or solving a society challenge with a tech solution? Apply before April 1st for The LEAP² Tech Women Challenge Uganda. If you fit the criteria you are welcome to apply by filling out this form. After application we might get back to you to ask some more information. Innovations can apply until March 31st. On April 3rd we will announce the ten innovations who will join the challenge.
After the selection a crowdfund training will be organised in Kampala on 11th April. During this day we will share all the ins and outs about crowdfunding and make sure you are ready to start the campaign month. The goal is to have you walk away with a full set campaign plan.
During this training you also get the chance to meet with professionals who could help you solve business problems you come across in your business.
3. Campaign month
After a full crowdfunding training, we will kick off your crowdfunding campaigns and your campaign period will start. During your campaign you will crowdfund for your business or a project within your own business.
Close the Gap will match the amount you raised once you are at 50% with a maximum of €2000.
All ten crowdfunding campaigns will run until 18th May 2018 The challenge ends with a pitch training at WITU HUB in Kampala. During the final the ten innovation teams learn how to perfect their pitch and have a final chance to give their campaign a boost.
Looking forward to welcoming you to the LEAP² movement!
