THE STARTUP BAR

THE STARTUP BAR

The Startup Bar - Nairobi edition in partnership with KPMG East Africa Private enterprise was a smashing success! Together, we pooled our expertise, resources, and passion to create an unforgettable experience for founders, investors, technologists and our partners. Witnessing founders take stage, pitch their ideas, and engage in dynamic discussions with the crowd was an inspiring sight to see, as attendees generously shared insights, offered advice, and sparked new connections. This collaborative spirit truly embodies the essence of the startup community in Nairobi – coming together to support, learn, and grow. Here’s to the power of collaboration, learning, and networking! Over the three days, participants learned the principles of innovation and used them to develop solutions in 10 teams that had students and faculty working together. They developed solutions to problems such as mental health, universal healthcare and ecological conservation. This culminated in a pitch session in front of a seasoned panel where the top 4 s were recognized. The participants shall spearhead hackathons which will be executed in all faculties in the University in preparation for the Nairobi Innovation Week. We are looking forward to continual partnership to foster a culture of innovation within the University. With the support of over 100 innovation incubation and accelerator hubs, the hacklab received over 300 submissions from individuals committed to achieving bodily autonomy and ending FGM. Startinev's support and involvement in this event highlights the company's commitment to promoting social good and driving positive change in communities across Africa.
