ICT studio for enhancing mining enterprise start-ups

02 July 2012

In today’s world, Small and Medium Enterprises (SMEs) are becoming increasingly interested in using Information and Communication Technology (ICT) to facilitate start-ups in the ever-changing environment. The failure rate of start-up firms seems to remain high due to the lack of adequate agile decision services.

An important challenge SMEs need to meet is to find ways to support the start-up decision process among stakeholders in a distributed environment in particular in transition countries. In her study, Annabella Basaza identified enterprise start-up issues in mining SMEs in Uganda. She developed and evaluated a studio for enhancing mining enterprise start-ups in Uganda. This helps to facilitate the mining knowledge service centers in their enterprise start-up role in Uganda and countries with similar contexts.
