Experiences from a social entreprenurship project in Uganda
Paper in proceedings, 2011

Entrepreneurship is an increasingly common way of improving economies in less developed countries. This paper aims to present a societal initiative in Uganda to show how initial ideas have merged into something new. The paper is based on a case study where narratives present the various views of the events. Data was mainly collected through interviews in 2010 but the case has been studied continuously since 2007. Through the individual stories it is possible to follow how expectations and ideas of others affect the project and how it has to be adjusted and thereby creating valuable understanding for future initiatives.
