American Councils supports the strengthening of the entrepreneurial ecosystem in Uzbekistan through its administration of the U.S. Embassy funded Uzbekistan Business Leaders (UBL) Program!
While in-person travel to the United States remains on hold, 25 Fellows came together for the 2021 UBL Launch Workshop, featuring three U.S. trainers and entrepreneurs leading sessions on innovation, entrepreneurship, networking, and leadership.
Over three days of training, a diverse group of UBL fellows from ten cities across Uzbekistan focused on topics such as customer development, design thinking, virtual reality applications in business, and forecasting. Leveraging the opportunity offered during the launch event, Fellows began the creation of a powerful network of emerging businesses.
