OXFAM and B-Space release a report on Impact investor funding in Uganda.
B-Space and Oxfam Uganda have jointly released a report titled ”Mapping the Impact investment Space in Uganda” as part of the ON Impact Investments (ONII) program. Under the program, Oxfam is supporting entrepreneurs committed to achieving social impact while making financial returns in Africa and Asia.
In Uganda, Oxfam engaged the services of B-Space to incubate social and sustainable businesses. As a Partner, B-Space’s responsibility is to create a pipeline of investor ready social businesses through tailored business development support. B-Space put together a team of coaches and consultants from various disciplines to achieve this.
After a thorough selection process of the beneficiaries,the team together with the beneficiaries developed individual tailor-made road maps. Under each road map, aspects of the beneficiaries’ business operations that needed improvement were identified in order to make them investor ready and increase their chances of getting access to finance and allocating it accordingly.
It is from this that the team produced the report containing insights on impact investor funding specifically in Uganda.
