About Us

The purpose of MOTIV is to create indigenous industry opportunities throughout Africa, starting with Uganda. We work with creatives and makers to refine & scale their businesses to meet demand for local & international markets. We provide holistic solutions that foster collaboration in an impactful and sustainable way through providing tools, training, a marketplace, value chain support & bringing together a community of like minded creatives.


Africa is filled with talented designers, artisans, makers, and thinkers in Africa struggle every day to provide for themselves and their families.

MoTIV exists to light a path for them. We are here to teach and to create a platform to showcase these undercapitalized brands and products
