Social Impact Award Uganda for Young Entrepreneurs 2019

Deadline: 17 May 2019

Applicants are invited to apply for the 2019 Social Impact Award to support young innovators in building social enterprises that address the most challenging issues of the time.


Three winners will be selected; two (2) Best Upcoming social ventures and one People’s Choice Award.

  • The Best Upcoming social ventures are selected by a team of jury after a jury presentation and each will win $1000 for implementing their ideas and a fully paid expense trip to the Social Impact Award Global Summit in Kiev, Ukraine.
  • The people’s choice award is selected through community voting. The venture with the most votes wins the People’s Choice Award. This category will win an all-expense paid trip to the summit in Kiev, Ukraine.

The SIA Summit 2019 is a gathering of 130+ young social innovators from 20+ countries in Europe, Africa and Asia taking place in the Ukranian capital Kiev from November 26th to 30th.
