Young tycoon to speak at the UK Investment Convention in UK

One of Uganda’s young movers and shakers will be sharing his journey of Entrepreneurship achievement at the largest Uganda investment Convention on 15th September 2018 at the Troxy, Commercial Road London.

 

With 5 companies under the Mas Group, Yunus who started out in business while still a student has been outstanding in his endeavours and passionate about challenging the status quo in society for the past 8 years.

 

Named the Young Employer of the year in 2014 by the Federation of Uganda Employers during the Employer of the year awards gala, Yunus has gone on to inspire youths that anything is possible and passion plus determination is what has kept him focused. His Business Conglomerate Mas Group was named the Gold Winner of the SME category for the Employer of the year awards in 2015 organised by the Federation of Uganda Employers.

 

In 2015 Yunus was among the five entrepreneurs chosen to represent Uganda at the 6th Global Entrepreneurship Summit in Kenya, which was attended by the president of the United States of America, Barack Obama, Akon and many other high profile business captains.

 

Yunus has ventured in multiple lines of business where he has excelled. Most notably, he now runs a security company TRACK 24 providing GPS tracking services and having the biggest market share for Boda Boda tracking and vehicles. Yunus is also into renewable energy with Khainza Energy which has been recognised globally for its efforts in production and packaging of biogas for low income earners as a substitute to firewood and charcoal. Khainza Energy was named among the top 50 companies in Africa by the African Entrepreneurship Award 2017 held in Morocco where it was finalist in the awards.

 

Yunus has also consulted for both local and international companies seeking penetration in new markets in Uganda under his consultancy firm Mas Consults & Associates. He is passionate about entrepreneurship and women involvement in economic growth.

 

“I always believe I will win,” he concludes assertively. “If we went to war and I was the army commander, I would burn my army’s boats. That way they would know it’s a do or die. There is no return!”

 

Yunus will not only be inspiring especially young Ugandans in the UK but also give an insight on how to successful run a business in Uganda with all the hurdles. He will share tips, challenges and the no go areas.

 

Ugandans in the diaspora will be able to register for their national identification card, dual citizenship, apply for home Mortgage Loan of up to 80% of the purchase amount from Housing Finance bank, open up accounts in Uganda shillings, US Dollars, British pounds, Euros, South African rand and Kenyan shillings with Centenary bank, buy their dream homes from reputable developers and many more benefits on the day.

 

UCUK is an annual prestigious business conference that attracts over 1000 delegates, designed specifically to promote and facilitate bilateral trade between the UK, the Diaspora with Uganda, facilitate foreign direct investment in Uganda and, provide a platform for businesses to expand into new markets and promote British businesses exporting to Uganda.

The Event will also feature a number of exhibitors who will showcase themselves and serve as points of contact for their organisations and businesses. This is reinforced by the Chairman’s statement that “At UCUK we aim to seek the way forward for international trade and development,”
