The Team

At UNC,  you’ll find a community of real people, led by leaders who emphasize their real-world, real-life experiences to guide our community toward an authentic life. Meet our Team:

JOACHIM KIKOMEKO - MD, MSc. Medicine: Director of finance and sponsorships. 

I am originally from Uganda, but I have been living in the Netherlands since 2008. I am a practicing medical doctor after having graduated with a Master of Medicine from Amsterdam University Medical Centre. Currently pursuing a further specialization in internal medicine with a special interest in oncology.  I have a great passion for my country Uganda and using my achievements and connections to create beneficial platforms for the Ugandans in the diaspora and those back home.  Next to my work as a doctor, I am one of the founders of the Uganda Netherlands Business Convention in 2017, a multi-disciplinary platform dedicated to advancing projects to bankable stages, raising capital, and accelerating the financial closure of deals.  Before becoming the UNBC finance director, I served as the finance director for the Ugandan community in the Netherlands.  Via our platform, I urge all potential investors to consider investing in Uganda via different themes: (Feed Uganda, Light up Uganda, Improve Uganda’s welfare, Connect Uganda, etc).  Remember Uganda has a young population with a growing labor force, a highly valuable asset in an aging world.

From the moment I arrived in the Netherlands to this moment, I have been an active member of the community, offering my time and any resources there about needed in the different initiatives.
