THE Uganda Investment Authority (UIA) has announced that the country will host the Kampala Private Equity and Venture Capitalist Conference 2015 from June 24 to June 26, 2015.

The conference, according to a statement by theorganisers, is the first of its kind and will focus on providing alternative sources and financing for Small and Medium Enterprises (SMEs).

The growth and development of SMEs, it stated, was among government’s key priority areas, which had been hampered by, lack of affordable and appropriate finance for the investment growth and expansion of businesses.

This state necessitated alternative funding solutions, which should be more appropriate and more affordable than traditional funding options.

These solutions were from another section of the private sector; and they provide a win-win situation.
