Nile Breweries, in partnership with Enterprise Uganda, has launched Season 11 of its annual entrepreneurship campaign, Be A Millionaire.

 Announcing the launch at the company head office in Luzira, Kampala on July 25, officials said sh100m was earmarked as prize money, with participants winning at both the regional competition and the national grand finale.

Season II, themed the Last Man Standing, returns with a couple of twists in a game show format, while maintaining the core objective of supporting businesses with both financial injection and knowledge transfer.

The nationwide five-week campaign, aimed at sharpening the business acumen of aspiring youth entrepreneurs, will traverse five regions (north, west, central, east and south-west), culminating into the national finale.

 “In line with the sustainability agenda, we committed to help entrepreneurs keep on their feet in the current volatile economic environment,” said Onapito Ekomoloit, the Nile Breweries legal and corporate affairs director.

He also said it takes more than just finances to successfully run business. 

Charles Ocici, the executive director of Enterprise Uganda, said: “We believe in resources beyond money, and that’s the person. We come in with the right mindset training and then the power of entrepreneurship is stimulated.”
