Event Details

Started by entrepreneurial students from Kingston University, London - the number one university for student and graduate start-ups in the UK, The Association of Student Enterprises (NASE), is proud to bring you our 4th Leap Conference

WHAT IS THE LEAP CONFERENCE? 

The two-day Leap Conference, which is one of the key events in the Global Entrepreneurship Week celebrations in Uganda, will draw together 1,000 youth, graduates and enterprising students from Uganda’s top Universities for a 2-day impactful and hands-on programme of practical support for identifying and developing business ideas. The Leap Conference is not about speeches or lecturers. As the name suggest, it is designed to challenge and inspire the youth to literally take the “Leap” into the world of business and entrepreneurship. From idea generation, branding, marketing, finances, etc, the Leap Conference equips young people with the tools essential for developing business ideas and running a successful enterprise.

As well as a unique opportunity to network with a diverse range of young people from a variety of backgrounds, the Leap Conference, which happens once a year, features practical games and business simulations, seasoned entrepreneurs, mentors and speaker - prepare to be inspired. 

Can I apply even though I am not a student? Absolutely. While the majority will be students, we are definitely open to having some (very strong) non-student participants, particularly investment ready start-ups with working prototypes or products and services ready to hit the market.

VENUE:  Kampala: 

Actual venue will be confirmed by the end of September 2018.

What are donor tickets? 

 

To-date, the Leap Conference, since 2015, has challenged and inspired over 2,000 enterprising students and graduates from Uganda’s top Universities to take control of their future by “Leaping” into the world of business and entrepreneurship. Dennis Aguma and a team of volunteers do this out of passion and a desire to make a difference in people’s lives. This, in their spare time and with no budget whatsoever, save for the generous support of family, friends and a number of organisations. The 4th Leap Conference has bigger ambitions - to impact 1,000 students, and offer incubation and seed investment to the top 5 businesses. As well as the seed investment, the 2 day conference requires funds to cater for the logistics before, during and after the event. This includes venue, food, drinks, conference materials for both the Leap Conference and a subsequent boot camp for the winners of our pitching competition. For the conference to happen, our founder, Dennis Aguma, also requires flights to and from London, and facilitation for three weeks while in the country organising the conference. All this requires around £20,000 most of which will be grants and seed investment in the top five businesses.

The donor tickets are reserved, not for delegates, but for individuals that wish to support this noble cause. With your support, you’ll not only be inspiring each of the 1,000 enterprising student delegates to start a business and therefore have a brighter future, but you’ll also have a chance to be an honouraly founder of what could potentially be the next big business from Sub Saharan Africa. As an honouraly founder member, you will receive a certificate, and have the first bite at the start-ups’ products, and the opportunity to be one of the first investors at the start-ups’ next round of funding when they begin to scale. 

We cant do this alone. Will you stand with us? Please give what you can. Every little helps.
