EVENTS | Make-IT in Africa @ 5th Sankalp Africa Summit

WE PROMOTE DIGITAL INNOVATION FOR SUSTAINABLE AND INCLUSIVE DEVELOPMENT.

On 2nd March 2018, Make-IT in Africa held the ‘Gateway to Africa from Germany‘ session at the Sankalp Forum in Nairobi. The session revolved around the question: how to expose Kenyan start-ups and the ecosystem to opportunites by the German partners? and consisted of a start-up Reverse Pitch followed by a B2B networking session. In sum, the session provided the start-ups with a great opportunitiy to engage with existing German programs in East Africa.

For the session, Make-IT in Africa and the German Chambers of Commerce AHK brought together DEG, Enpact and 10 start-ups that had gone on an exposure trip to Germany to showcase the opportunities for Kenyan start-ups by German partners. For both, the exposure trip and the participation, Make-IT in Africa covered all costs and fees for the start-ups.
