2024 Women Entrepreneurship Celebrations set for July 5 th .

8th May, 2024

The Ideation Corner Foundation has officially kicked off the annual Women Entrepreneurship Celebrations that will climax in a major activity in Kampala on July 5th, 2024.

Organized by the Ideation Corner Foundation in partnership with HiPipo and Women’s Entrepreneurship Day Organisation (WEDO), the annual Women Entrepreneurship Celebrations recognize exceptional women entrepreneurs leading Uganda’s transformation. It gives young and upcoming women innovators an unparalleled chance to network with already established entrepreneurs; and also celebrate milestones that women founders and business leaders have accomplished over the years.

The inaugural Women Entrepreneurship Celebration was held in 2021 at the Stanbic Business Incubator, Kololo where up to 25 Women Entrepreneurs attended. 

The second edition took a dinner theme held on December 17th, 2022 at Kampala Serena Hotel, attracting up to 50 Women Entrepreneurs who each had a chance to pitch their businesses, share experiences and mutually celebrate each other’s accomplishments.

“Over the past five years, the Ideation Corner has contributed to Uganda and Africa’s entrepreneurship success by offering young entrepreneurs free space to ideate, conceptualize, develop, fine-tune and turn their ideas into reality. We also support those already on the market with the much-required business development and management skills. During this period, we have interacted with over 1000 innovators, hosted more than 80 entrepreneurs on our podcasts, and featured up to 22 visionaries in our inaugural Ideation Corner book that was published in 2021,” Ambassador Damali Ssali, Founder Ideation Corner explained.

She added: “From our interaction with women entrepreneurs, we discovered that while a lot of effort continues to be channeled towards encouraging them to put their best foot forward, little or no effort is being channeled towards ‘looking back to appreciate the ride so far, celebrate the small milestones accomplished, network, re-energize and continue with the journey of transformation’. Many entrepreneurs invest a lot of resources, most of which are never recouped yet a token of appreciation, however small, would go a long way in reminding them that they are valued, and their contribution cherished.”

Building on the remarkable success of the first and second editions, the third Women Entrepreneurship Celebrations are set to be held on Friday 5th July, 2024 in Kampala. The third edition is bigger and better as it will also cover 2023 which was missed.

Minus the main activity scheduled for July 5th, the 2024 celebrations will have other virtual and physical activities involving Women Entrepreneurs, project partners and supporters.  A timeline of activities will be communicated in due course.
