SMEstox is micro-stock exchange trading portal for Small and Medium-Sized Enterprises (SMEs). SMEs and startups listed on this platform can raise investment capital by selling stake/equity trading in their young companies to angel investors and mature SMEs can raise scaling capital by listing available stake. A study by Makerere University Business School (MUBS) and sponsored by among others the European Union (EU) in 2004 indicates found that one in every two businesses started in Uganda fails usually within three years. Many early-stage startups and SMEs in Uganda have not hit their business potential due to a shortage of capital. This can be attributed to 1) Limited awareness within the public about the existence of the startups and SMEs 2) There are few known and reliable benchmarks on which potential investors can base their investment decisions to acquire the SMEs. These are the main hindrances to credit sourcing for startups and SMEs because these challenges deny the SMEs and startups the opportunity to raise capital from external sources.
