About BiD Network
Facilitating Investment for Small and Medium sized Enterprises in East Africa
Mission & Goal
BiD Network’s mission is to contribute to sustainable economic growth in emerging countries through entrepreneurship.
Small and Medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) are the backbone of any economy. By creating jobs and income, they are crucial to the economic and social development of developing countries. They are also a powerful force against poverty. However, businesses face difficulties getting started or growing because they lack access to finance.
BiD Network’s goal is to support emerging market entrepreneurs to gain access to finance. Since 2007, BiD Network has raised nearly 30 million in investment capital for over 230 entrepreneurs. Via its local office in Uganda, BiD Network offers business support and matchmaking services to selected entrepreneurs that have significant growth potential and a competent entrepreneurial team. Via these services, BiD Network is able to provide high quality deal flow to its local and international network of over 200 investors. Other investor services are investor trips and the Ready-to-Invest Master classes for angel investors.
