Networking

At UWEAL, we believe that providing opportunities for women to meet and share experiences on how to start, sustain and grow a business makes a difference in an entrepreneur’s mind. We also encourage women to create markets for each other through personal contacts established when we bring them together. Our members are, therefore, exposed to potential markets nationally, regionally and internationally through our membership to organisations such as East African Business Council, Private Sector Foundation Uganda and East African Women Entrepreneurs Exchange Network. UWEAL is also the network hub for Africa Businesswomen’s Network, a network that brings together six African countries namely; Cameroon, Ethiopia, Ghana, Kenya, Nigeria, Uganda and South Africa.
