A year ago we dreamt of opening an incubator in Nairobi, today the doors opened up thanks to Bart, Tonee, Anna and a host of partners, sponsors and friends.
The Nailab was inspired by Y Combinator and Hackfwd and is the first incubator in East Africa that is not a space for rental but a space for turning smart ideas into profitable ventures, while the nailab does not provide seed money, it provides most resources that a start-up venture requires to create co-create and move an idea into a profitable venture worth the attention of serious VC and Angel Investors.
Sitting in a 1,972 sq feet of office space in a beautiful building that oversees the Ngong Hills, Nairobi Central business district, the National park from a distance and Kibera the biggest slum in east africa, the nailab will offer :
- high speed internet access
- a dedicated working space for start-ups
- mentors and coaches draw from different professionals
- networking events and opportunities
- VC and Angel investor pitch sessions
- and a positively vibrant co-creation space
It does make you wish you had just finished school and you are 18 all over again , before joining University.. and you can start dreaming big and creating things, at 32 I doubt am a write off for innovative ideas I think I have allot under my sleeves.. that goes on until am 70 for those doubting.
