Technology, Policy and Financing

Every year, Hive Colab hosts a technology summit called Swarm. This event brings together the leading voices in the Ugandan tech community to discuss recent developments, showcase new innovations, and identify potential for the future. As the tech ecosystem continues to grow in Uganda, it will need a space and stage to convene all the great minds in our ecosystem to celebrate Uganda’s tech achievements. The annual Swarm Summit is that platform.
