For our latest film, Barefoot in Business, we have journeyed to Africa to follow the fortunes of Uganda's growing band of business women as they defy the statistics and stereotypes and compete for the prestigious Female Entrepreneur of the Year Awards. Ultimately this is a project that aims to present and alternative and empowering portrait of 21st century Africa by showcasing the incredible attitudes and enterprises of these female entrepreneurs and, hopefully in turn, uniting them with potential customers, investors and business mentors from across Scotland and beyond.

This is about trade, not aid, and we are really excited about this project’s potential not just to challenge the traditional stereotypes but to genuinely change lives both over in Uganda and here in Scotland.
