We are pleased to announce a strategic partnership with First Circle Capital and Muazu Africa. This partnership aims to empower women entrepreneurs in Uganda by providing trainings on fundraising.

Through a series of comprehensive workshops, webinars, and mentoring sessions, women in Uganda will gain a deep understanding of fundraising strategies, effective pitching techniques, investor relationship management, and financial modeling. This program is designed to empower women at all stages of their entrepreneurial journey, whether they are starting a new venture or looking to scale an existing business.

Led by a diverse group of experienced mentors and industry experts, this initiative will create a supportive and inclusive environment where women can learn, network, and collaborate with like-minded individuals. Participants will have the opportunity to connect with successful women entrepreneurs and investors, further expanding their professional network and opening doors to potential funding opportunities.

Recognizing the significant potential of women-led businesses, First Circle Capital and Muazu Africa have joined hands to bridge the investment gap and create a supportive ecosystem for female entrepreneurs in Uganda. By combining First Circle Capital’s expertise in venture capital and Muazu Africa’s deep understanding of the local business landscape, this collaboration will fuel the growth of women-owned enterprises and foster economic empowerment.

This partnership is aimed at empowering women and equipping them with the essential skills to succeed in fundraising. In an effort to bridge the gender gap in access to capital, this program will provide women with the knowledge, tools, and confidence they need to secure funding for their entrepreneurial ventures.

Studies have shown that women-owned businesses face unique challenges when it comes to raising capital. We believe that by addressing these challenges head-on and providing women with the necessary resources, we can unlock their true potential and drive economic growth.

Through this partnership, First Circle Capital and Muazu Africa will offer tailored financial solutions to women entrepreneurs, providing access to capital for business expansion, innovation, and market penetration. In addition to financial support, the partnership will facilitate knowledge sharing, mentorship programs, and networking opportunities, enabling women entrepreneurs to gain valuable insights, guidance, and connections crucial for scaling their enterprises.

“We are thrilled to partner with Muazu Africa in our shared commitment to empower women entrepreneurs in Uganda,” said Agnes Aistleitner Kisuule, Co-Founder and Managing Director of First Circle Capital. “By combining our resources and expertise, we aim to unlock the vast potential of women-led businesses and contribute to a more inclusive and prosperous economy. We believe that investing in women-owned enterprises not only drives economic growth but also creates positive social change.”
