Government of Uganda designed the National ICT Initiatives Support Programme to facilitate the creation of an ICT Innovation ecosystem and marketplace for Ugandan innovative digital products <p></p> The growth of the ICT innovation ecosystem in Uganda has mainly been private sector led with minimal direct support from government. Unfortunately, this approach has not been very successful and it has created standalone and closed software applications that have not promoted innovation at a national level. The NIISP(National ICT Initiatives Support Programme) will tackle bottlenecks to creating a digital ecosystem by promoting the development and deployment of applications to create an open ecosystem in Uganda that shall enable the government, companies and individuals to innovate and reach new markets. <p></p> The program shall: <mark> <br> - Encourage innovation by providing opportunities to create applications to support service delivery; <br> - Generate highly skilled jobs and wealth for individuals and companies that create applications for both government and the private sector; and <br> - Improve the use of government data for ICT innovation and application development. <mark> <p></p> The NIISP shall champion the creation of the ICT Innovation ecosystem to facilitate the growth and development of the software applications and innovations industry. The NIISP will focus on encouraging the creation of easy to consume and highly marketable digital products. The Specific Objectives for this programme are: <mark> <br> - To provide systematic and sustainable support to national ICT innovators <br> - To promote ICT products, services and solutions for improved service delivery as part of a wider digital ecosystem. <br> - To establish and operationalize ICT innovation parks. <br> - To promote local electronics manufacturing and assembly. </mark>
The only startup programme and innovation ecosystem builder in the world entirely dedicated to access to justice. Some of the 139 startups we have supported since 2011 are growing fast. To support their growth and impact we have designed a Scaling Programme together with Growth Africa, a tailored programme to unblock growth challenges and ensure investment-readiness. <p></p> For startups that are ready for investment we have developed the Innovating Justice Fund, together with fund manager FOUNT, and are currently deploying for first investments and raising more capital for future investments. <p></p> Our Justice Accelerator <mark>supports innovators who have developed solutions that need support to scale.</mark> With Justice Innovation Labs we offer a process to our national partners to develop fundable projects to develop or improve national gamechangers. <p></p> The Innovation Labs bring together stakeholders who share a common concern around a given justice goal or challenge. The participants recognize the need for new justice solutions and are willing to collaborate on designing and implementing such solutions. In the Lab, teams dive deep into the justice challenge, design different solutions, and develop investable project propositions.
