Kenya’s Startup ecosystem is shaping up! This is evidenced by the growing number of innovation hubs and labs, great ideas by startups, talent and investor networks.

Universities are realigning their education delivery methods to accommodate the new wave of innovation. The local and international investor network is gradually picking up and injecting support in startups in the country and region. Development partners are recognizing and supporting this movement. We have a duty to sustain the momentum and propel the country to the next level.
If you are a stakeholder in the startup ecosystem, this forum is a must attend to engage, network and gather insights regarding the fast-developing ecosystem! Working with partners, Make-IT is partnering with NIW to host a Startup Ecosystem Forum.
