Tim commented on Refugee Investment Network (RIN)

Thanks again Ikong for your good thoughts and interest in RIN. We are well aware of the needs and some of the opportunities in Uganda. Indeed, one of our Steering Committee members, Joseph Muyambanza, grew up in a camp in Uganda. And we want to do work there when resources become available. Let's stay in touch.

Hi Ikong: RIN can best be thought of as the connective tissue between refugee entrepreneurs and refugee and host community supporting investments and interested capital. We are more a knowledge partner (check out our website at refugeeinvestments.org to see some of our tools and field-building collateral), not an incubator although we work with a number of accelerators and incubators working with refugee entrepreneurs and are currently conducting a global assessment of such to determine the landscape, needs, etc. and to help determine which ones are the best sources for potential investors.
