Netherlands Trust Fund (NTF) IV Project
NTF is a continuation of a long-running partnership between the Dutch Centre for the Promotion of Imports from developing countries (CBI) and ITC.
This ambitious project sought to increase the competitiveness of technology companies in Uganda. ITC’s Netherlands Trust Fund project aimed to strengthen the competitiveness of micro, small and medium-sized enterprises (MSMEs) in Uganda’s information technology (IT) and IT-enabled services (ITES) sectors.
This project was designed to scale up companies, provide more end-to-end solutions, engage more start-ups, and ultimately be one of the key drivers of the development of Uganda’s IT sector.
