WHAT IS THE LEAP CONFERENCE?
Started by entrepreneurial students from Kingston University, London – the number one university for student and graduate start-ups in the UK, The Association of Student Enterprises (NASE), is proud to bring you our 4th Leap Conference.
The two-day Leap Conference, which is one of the key events in the Global Entrepreneurship Week celebrations in Uganda, will draw together 1,000 youth, graduates and enterprising students from Uganda’s top Universities for a 2-day impactful and hands-on programme of practical support for identifying and developing business ideas. The Leap Conference is not about speeches or lecturers. As the name suggets, it is designed to challenge and inspire the youth to literally take the “Leap” into the world of business and entrepreneurship. From idea generation, branding, marketing, finances, etc, the Leap Conference equips young people with the tools essential for developing business ideas and running a successful enterprise.
As well as a unique opportunity to network with a diverse range of young people from a variety of backgrounds, the Leap Conference, which happens once a year, features practical games and business simulations, seasoned entrepreneurs, mentors and speaker – prepare to be inpsired.
