The Uganda Chamber Entrepreneurs is a private initiative with a nation-wide reach among youth to inspire a sustainable Entrepreneurship culture.
The Chamber is supported by the Government of Uganda, international organizations, numerous companies and individuals with a huge belief in the role of young people in Economic growth.
Our main objective is to promote and support the interests of Uganda’s huge youth population both already in Entrepreneurship and the potential young business owners.
“We are vested with the transformation of the entrepreneurial landscape in Uganda and as such, we are constantly rolling out programmes and initiatives that will help shape Uganda’s youths for a stronger social and economic future,” CYE President Edwin Musiime says.
Young entrepreneurs and women in business in Uganda meet every year for the #CYE entrepreneurship summit meeting as the main event of the chamber. The summit drives annual unique conversations on creating a shared economic and social future.
One of the key reasons the Uganda Entrepreneurship Week was founded is to highlight entrepreneurship as a driver of economic growth. Young entrepreneurs are job creators, and through their innovative ideas, they bring about new-and-improved products, services, and technology. All these have a ripple effect on the economy, as it contributes to increased employment, creates more qualified workers for industries, and generates more national wealth.
Theme: “Building innovative and Sustainable Businesses.”
The 2023 Summit aims at rededicating and empowering the young people of Uganda to develop a shared narrative to contribute towards the economic growth of Uganda. The programme, initiatives and projects of the Summit are focused on creating a Shared Future in a bid to inspire a new entrepreneurship culture, increase the rates of startups, create more jobs and improve the wealth creation rates.
As we get to the summit day #CYE2022 has hosted 3 forums with 2 more to go before the main opening ceremony. The forums are offering a wider opportunity for dialogue and debate and to ensure the voices of young entrepreneurs and women in business are heard and economic knowledge shared for a stronger entrepreneurial fabric.

We aim to provide guidance and encouragement to the next generation of leaders, in whatever way we can. Presently we run an effective CYE LE-Leadership & Entrepreneurship Program through career workshops across Uganda and school programs and a summit – all focused on entrepreneurship.
A 6-week programme to equip startups with basic skills required to launch and run their businesses at early growth stage. It covers several topics including starting and scaling a business, business development, marketing strategy, effective management, product design etc.
Our model provides a credible technology-enabled platform for access to world-class mentors from across Uganda, Africa and internationally. The mentors have faced similar challenges and are able to steer our startups on a successful path.
This pillar we consider very vital for the success of the CYE initiative. Before any man receives a fish want them to know how to use the fishing rod to catch much greater fish.
