Together with the Embassy of the Kingdom of the Netherlands in Kenya, and the Netherlands Business Hub Kenya we have co-created:

The Business Mentorship Program!

In this program, 10 ambitious, young, aspiring and starting Kenyan entrepreneurs will be matched to 10 members of the NL Business Hub for a cross-border mentorship journey. Together, the mentors and mentees will embark on a program fully focused on personal and professional growth. This exciting program will run from June 2024 up to January 2025.

The goal

The goal is to foster a valuable connection between mentees and mentors and to establish a lifelong community of entrepreneurs that can draw inspiration from each other. It will be a mutual learning experience on skill building and networking to support the ‘kick-start of your startup’ for mentees and give mentors the chance to pass on their expertise onto the next generation of talented young entrepreneurs.
