Promoting the Growth and Competitiveness of SMEs

Our vision
To be a centre of excellence for the creation and the nurturing of a globally competitive private sector in Uganda.

The mission
To develop a new generation of dynamic Ugandan entrepreneurs by actively providing support to the small and medium scale enterprises (SMEs) to enhance their productivity, growth and competitiveness.

Enterprise Uganda Foundation Limited (EUg) is public-private institution designed to support the government in realizing its objective of promoting the development of Small and Medium Scale Enterprises (SMEs) to become the main vehicle for expanding production, providing sustainable jobs and enhancing economic growth.

It was established under a framework of the UNDP Enterprise Africa regional initiative. A consortium of local and international donors including UNDP Uganda, Enterprise Africa, UNCTAD, Norway, Sweden and the Government of Uganda is promoting it. Its concept is based on UNCTAD's Empretec Programme Model currently operating in 32 countries in Africa, Eastern Europe and Latin America. The Empretec model is designed as one-stop programme, which provides an integrated and comprehensive range of business support services for SMEs using a hands-on approach.
