MTN Uganda is set to host a master class business expo for business practitioners in Kampala, a day that will be characterized by education and networking that seeks to further empower women in the country.

The expo, according to MTN Business officials is part of activities to commemorate this 5th edition of celebrating Women and specifically those engaged in Business.

It is slated to take place on Friday March 3rd at Protea Hotel in Kampala, from 8am to 5pm and will be facilitated by experts (by topic) to registered participants.

“From previous editions, we noted an opportunity to empower women entrepreneurs with knowledge that is critical to running a successful business outfit,” noted Martin Sebuliba, an official from MTN Uganda.

The expo is also a part of the recently launched 2017 edition of the MTN Women in Business Awards that seek to celebrate the achievements of Ugandan women entrepreneurs who against all odds continue to excel in the predominantly male dominated field of business.
