ABOUT THE NEST AFRICA
The Nest Africa is sub-Saharan Africa’s community hub that seeks to harness the potential in Africa’s industry and economy to address the region’s most pressing challenges.
Our goal is to create a thriving community of entrepreneurs across Africa by providing networking, innovations, ideas development and fund raising platforms to ensure young companies and established businesses can run their businesses efficiently and sustainably, while adopting the latest technologies and practices.
With plans to establish the first Hub in Nairobi, Kenya by 2022, we are aiming at establishing other Hubs across other locations in sub-Saharan Africa in due course, so that our impact can be greater and more localised across the Continent.
The Nest Africa brings together young companies, established companies, Government agencies, universities and research institutes, suppliers, NGOs, foundations, financial institutions, private equity and venture capital firms, angel investors among many other stakeholders – to ensure that the Hub is a community of stakeholders who shall ensure that Africa’s businesses of the future will be more sustainable and innovative.
