CDA Executive Director Max Walter featured in Aspen Insights podcastUpdates
CDA’s Executive Director Max Walter is featured in the October episode “Creating Jobs, Alleviating Poverty” of the Aspen Institute’s Aspen Insight podcast and highlighted the “huge entrepreneurial energy in Uganda which could be leveraged to create sustainable and inclusive development in the long run.”
Walter gave insights about the challenges and constraints SMEs are faced with in Uganda: “while there’s a lot of energy and players in East Africa, the vast majority of businesses are still underserved” because “most small companies in Uganda don’t fit neatly into the categories investors look for”. He discussed further findings from our work on Phase I of the Uganda Entrepreneurial Ecosystem Initiative (UEEI) we completed together with Koltai and Company, LLC & Enterprise Uganda.

The comprehensive findings and recommendations from UEEI Phase I will be published soon.
