Having previously funded the HiveColab in Uganda, we’re pleased to announce a further grant of £15,078 to cover the cost of rent, salaries and internet for six months. The Hive is a community-owned, co-working space for young tech entrepreneurs with projects that they’re looking to get off the ground. Hive Colab Membership offer entrepreneurs access to tech events and conferences in Kampala, as well as a professional office environment, reliable internet and business mentorship and advice services.

The Hive is currently supporting a number of tech entrepreneurs and projects, including an initiative that allows citizens to report on water and sanitation problems, a social education platform, healthcare information management system and another aimed at helping SMEs keep track of their budget and expenses.
