WHAT IS IT?

Kindred Companions is a program designed to connect you with the entrepreneurs in our Uganda cohort in a meaningful and relational way.

As a Kindred Companion, you will have the opportunity to build a relationship, hop on monthly brainstorming calls, and support the vision of one of the Ugandan entrepreneurs walking through 10 months of business coaching with Kindred Exchange.

THE COMMITMENT

As a Kindred Companion, here's the commitment we will ask you to make over the next 10 months:

Who is it for?

As a Companion, we ask that you fully invest in your entrepreneur and commit to walking alongside them as a friend throughout the coaching process.

Because of this, we do not require Companions to have a background in business. We do, however, ask that Companions possess the following:

+ A willingness to learn alongside your entrepreneur throughout the 10 months
+ A desire to build an authentic friendship with your entrepreneur 
+ An excitement to learn about Ugandan culture
+ A willingness to ask questions, make connections, and advocate on behalf of your entrepreneur
