A Piece Of Advice To Women Looking To Start Up Their Own Businesses

Ugandan female entrepreneurs Liz Atukunda and Bunda Anne Katende are the brains behind the BIIKA brand, a company that makes unique handbags using leather with a mix of Ugandan materials.

While Liz is a lawyer/banker, Bunda is a childcare specialist who runs a preschool in Kampala and is a mother of 3. BIIKA hopes to be known as an outstanding Ugandan brand producing authentic African bags. Read below their piece of advice to women hoping to start up their own businesses .

What's the biggest piece of advice you can give to other women looking to start-up?
Just start! Don’t not wait for approval from someone else. Allow yourselves the opportunity to be vulnerable - after all, it’s a vulnerable place where you make something and launch it in public, not knowing if people will buy it or not, or if people will approve of it or not, or if your venture will be a continuous labour of love. So, just allow yourselves to be vulnerable and do it - from that place, wondrous things are born.
