Inspiration Tours in Rwanda and Uganda in autumn 2019

Entrepreneurs for Entrepreneurs (OVO) is firmly convinced that prosperity can and will be stimulated and expanded thanks to local entrepreneurship. That’s why OVO fully supports promising African start-ups and businesses that promote innovation and sustainability. Extensive knowledge transfer and social loans ensure a powerful springboard for expanding a successful business. So OVO supports the growth of promising African businesses with a strong social mission.

OVO also makes sure that Belgian businesses too can garner interesting new insights and can even grow themselves thanks to active cooperation with African entrepreneurs on a basis of equality. OVO’s ‘Inspiration Tours’ give Belgian entrepreneurs and employees the opportunity to develop new competencies and skills through an incredibly unique experience. This is an extraordinary adventure and an unprecedented stimulus to creative thinking in symbiosis with spontaneous communication skills, flexibility and cooperative strength.

There are two parts to the Inspiration Tours: the first two days include visits to several inspiring, high-impact businesses; following this the participants attend a 3-day boot camp. They join up with a team from a local start-up or scale-up and actively work on making the business model sustainable. Belgian and local students also join the teams.

For these Inspiration Tours OVO is therefore looking for Belgian entrepreneurs and businesses who believe in sustainable entrepreneurship and the power of intercultural interaction, and who want to contribute their expertise.
 
In 2019 OVO is organizing two Inspiration Tours:
 
  • Inspiration Tour to Rwanda from 15 September to 21 September
  • Inspiration Tour to Uganda from 17 November to 23 November
A total of 10 entrepreneurs and employees can participate. The cost price is €1,040 for OVO members. Non-members pay €1,540 and so automatically become members for a year.
(What’s included: accommodation, transport on site and all meals; NOT included: air tickets*, visa, travel insurance, drinks)
