About SHIFT Enterprise Academy, Inc

The SHIFT Forward Center - Venture Studio is a venture-building studio that incubates businesses and strives to create an entire community for innovation and value creation.

Its competitive edge lies in innovation, sustainability, and community engagement. The centre will host a venture studio which will incubate 9 ventures per cohort. Similar to how we take a 10-40% stake in our ventures, the franchisee can also take a stake in the ventures they incubate in their centre. The venture studio makes money through the venture it invests in. Our target audience for the venture studio is women entrepreneurs, rural entrepreneurs, and forward-thinking entrepreneurs.

Investing in the franchise offers an innovative concept, strong brand identity, proven success, growth potential, and community impact.

The space requirement is huge as the ultimate plan is to create an entire centre with retail spaces where multiple businesses that our centre incubates can operate as well. More details on the land use can be viewed in the attached document.

The owner of this business has registered the company in Houston, Texas, USA. However, both the current operating studios are in Uganda.
