Dates for 2019 Kampala Innovation Week set

Kampala Innovation Week, one of Kampala’s biggest events for innovators, will return in October.

It will run for 3 days, that is, Oct. 16-18.

The venue is not indicated on the event’s website but it will likely be hosted the Innovation Village just as last year.


Organizers say in the three days, you’ll meet innovators, investors, policymakers among others.

“The KIW19 (Kampala Innovation Week 2019) aims to assemble all key players and stakeholders in the Startup Ecosystem to raise Uganda’s profile in the startup space, provide visibility to its startups, both locally & internationally and thereby attract investors and enable global partnerships,” reads a statement on the website.

KIW19 will involve a number of activities, including panel discussions, pitch sessions, entertainment, dinner meetups, and masterclasses.

It is sponsored by the Innovation Village, UN Capital Development Fund and Startup Uganda.

Other details like who will speak at the event, who’ll exhibit are yet to be unveiled.
