About Innovation Uganda

Welcome to www.innovateuganda.com, a project for Ugandan scientists, technologists and innovators.

The project is the brainchild of Ugandan media entrepreneur and Archbishop Desmond Tutu Leadership Programme Fellow, Arinaitwe Rugyendo, to track and document works and projects by Ugandan scientists for exposure to media and possible joint venture funding.

The project is a fulfillment of a promise made by the journalist to the Fellowship in the year 2012, to undertake programmes aimed at championing transformational change in Africa through the promotion of Science and Technology.

The project is therefore dedicated to documenting every innovation story, project and invention out of Uganda with the sole purpose of exposing Ugandan scientists and innovators’ work to the world of media exposure and joint venture capitalists. The ultimate aim is a platform, repository and database for Ugandan innovators, their stories and projects.

The team, in partnership with e2 Young Engineers Uganda, the Ugandan Ministry of Science, Technology and Innovations (MoSTI), Uganda Industrial Research Institute (UIRI) and the African Leadership Institute (AFLI), welcomes all support and dedication of Ugandan innovators and technologists whose works and projects need exposure.

At Innovate Uganda Project, we are dedicated to exposing Ugandan innovators and scientists to media and potential funders; a move we believe will accelerate the transformational journey of Uganda from ‘Third’ to ‘First’ World state.

Ugandan scientists, researchers and innovators are encouraged to interact with us as well as submit their project stories through our ENQUIRY and PROJECT STORIES channels on this website.
