The technology and Business development hub aims at bridging the incubation gap in the country
This hub is founded by Keneth Twesigye, a third year student of Computer Science at Uganda Technology and Management University.
Twesigye describes the hub as a center that identifies organized passionate starters then extends business development services such as; virtual and physical mentor-ship, convenient incubation space, associate networking services, training and seminars, among other services.
“We are focused on strengthening and attracting more partners ready to drive social entrepreneurship to the next level thus fulfilling techbuzz’s goals,” Twesigye elaborates.
The technology and Business development hub aims at bridging the incubation gap in the country and to create ways to overcome the barriers to employment, business sustainability and social development.
Due to the immense gap underlying between innovation and investment in Uganda, this has resulted to uneven distribution of money (resources) between the rich and the poor, where the rich grow richer as the poor sink more into poverty.
“TechBuzz is here to address that problem with the help of First Fortune Ltd which serves as an umbrella consult company,” says Twesigye.
Techbuzz is a for-profit organization but facilitates free and pro-Bono consult services using its professional networks sourced from organizations, local businesses and academia.
Established in early 2016, Techbuzz hub hosts online entrepreneurial training through multiple channels including Virtual and online systems, social media, USSD message formats and special arrangements through one on one.
The hub continues to expand at a rapid rate and more developments are already in plan for other channels.
This technology and Business development hub was established by a group of friends (UTAMU students) who recognized issues in the community around social marginalization, lack of community stimulus as well as a huge unemployment and information problem. In light of this, Techbuzz hub has developed a set of key aims that informs how the organization functions.
Techbuzz hub’s current primary aims are to make a difference in three key areas:
• To create of Employment Opportunities
• To act as a catalyst for economic change development
• To help young companies/start-ups to negotiate the hurdles that often lead to their early downfall
• To help starters/entrepreneurs to understand the definitive principles that underlie a success dedicated business or investment.
• To provide visibility and credibility in the marketplace
