Vision Group's Pakasa Youth Awards 2016 winners visited Samsung Innovation Museum (SIM), the largest industrial electronics museum in Korea.

The five-story museum is located in an office tower in Samsung Digital City in Suwon, a province a few KM south of Seoul, South Korea.

This 10,950sq ft museum displays the development of not just the Samsung Electronics Corporation through time but also the evolution of electronics technology as a whole - the past, present and future of electronics technology.

The 10 young entrepreneurs who won in Vision Group’s Pakasa Youth Awards 2016 in June this year are in South Korea on a two weeks business tour.

The team comprises Charles Amaku (West Nile), Moses Kibirige (north), Godfrey Munyegera (east), Martin Kibirige (central), Muzaphal Sekulima (West), Grace Nalugwa (woman), Hazel Namuwaya (woman), Denis Kasule (Kampala), Samuel Isale (east) and Ambrose Angulo (mid north).

KOICA (Korea International Cooperation Agency) sponsored the trip jointly with Embassy of South Korea in Uganda as part of the prize for the competition. The 10 also won sh10m in business support.

The Pakasa Youth Awards 2016 is a countrywide competition organized by Vision Group from October last year to March this year.

The 10 were selected from a pool of 171 profiles that were published by the New Vision's various media outlets. Their businesses range from Agro business, health, waste management, education and construction.
