Overview :



In support of national efforts to address youth unemployment, the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) in Uganda developed and is implementing the Youth4Business Innovation and Entrepreneurship Facility – an innovative instrument curated to promote entrepreneurship, foster innovation, and leverage innovative business solutions to address the youth unemployment challenge. The initiative is an integrated support package designed to spur impact-driven entrepreneurship and engage enterprises in tackling youth unemployment by leveraging innovations in selected economy sectors including CCIs.

More youth in Uganda are interested in starting their own businesses than finding employment. CCIs have significant potential to create numerous entrepreneurial opportunities for Uganda’s youth. However, creatives’ entrepreneurship is constrained by several challenges including limited access to affordable and appropriate financing, business incubation support and inadequate practical entrepreneurial competencies.

In the last half of 2021, the Youth4Business Innovation and Entrepreneurship Facility run an Innovation Challenge curated to catalyse CCIs entrepreneurship through nurturing and transforming creative ideas and models into sustainable enterprises that create jobs and livelihood opportunities for young people. A total of 50 inspiring ideas from across the country were selected for award of grants and business incubation support. However, Creatives’ entrepreneurship involves setting up commercially viable businesses in the CCIs.

In this regard, UNDP Uganda is seeking the services of a competent firm with demonstrated proficiency and experience in providing business incubation support and advisory services to design and implement a tailored business incubation and acceleration programme intended to equip these creative entrepreneurs with the knowledge, tools, and skills to build high-value, profitable businesses with high potential for job creation and profit-making.

UNDP Uganda is seeking to hire a qualified Consultancy Firm to provide business incubation support to 50 innovative Start-up Enterprises in the Cultural and Creative Industries.
