Day 1 – 15th March – Conference
We’ll have a full day gathering at the Kempinski Hotel where you’ll learn about the opportunities and challenges of impact investing in East Africa. You’ll get to meet with our purpose-driven entrepreneurs and discover their journey to scale and the impact they are having on their communities. The day will close with a fabulous networking cocktail where you can extend your network, make new friends and meet potential business partners.
Day 2 – 16th March – Entrepreneur Engagement
You will have a chance to visit some of the impact businesses TBN has been working with and spend time with the entrepreneurs. We’ll journey together into Nairobi’s informal settlements, spend time in a rapidly growing health business and visit a production facility to understand how their business operates. At the end of the day we’ll gather for an investor dinner.
Tourism options
Some international participants will stay afterwards to explore the beauty of Kenya and go on safari. If this is of interest then let us know how many days and we can suggest options and connect you with other conference participants.
Engaging Entrepreneurs
In the new year, we will share profiles of the TBN entrepreneurs, their businesses and the investment they are looking to raise. If there is a business of particular interest then let us know and we can provide further details and arrange an introduction.
