UGANDA’S ICT FUTURE:

Mwesigwa Daniel[email protected]_ANavalanche

@Lyk_ANavalanche Kenya is a much bigger economy than ours, their IT growth is a a couple of years ahead of ours. BUT [cont ] @zyee1qn #1qn

King[email protected]

@Lyk_ANavalanche [cont] But we’re seeing huge growth in the venture capital space in UG. Lots of money coming in for #ICT4D @zyee1qn #1qn

s-kam zac[email protected]_kamzac

@solomonking @Lyk_ANavalanche Additional to that there is no way the VCs will come to invest if they dont knw wat we have [cont].#1qn

s-kam zac[email protected]_kamzac

@solomonking @Lyk_ANavalanche [Cont] so the more awareness we giv of what we can do they will show interest. #1qn

King[email protected]

@s_kamzac Exactly, which is why there is an explosion of hackathons and labs and expos to showcase what UG is doing. @Lyk_ANavalanche #1qn

King[email protected]

@zyee1qn So we’re on the right path, we just need to accelerate funding and ideas and take those ideas to market.@Lyk_ANavalanche #1qn
