Invest in Kenya Initiative

What is Invest in Kenya Initiative?
Invest in Kenya Initiative is a new initiative of whose vision is to promote a thriving Kenyan economy. Working in partnership with both private and public sector, Invest in Kenya Initiative plans to identify the challenges of doing business in Kenya and proposing solutions for the same.

The Invest in Kenya Initiative is focused on job creation and improving the business environment for both international investors and local SMEs. Our priority is to increase the linkages between large international and domestic companies and smaller local business and increase access to skills, markets and finance.

We do this through the following ways:
1. Promoting sustainable cross-sector partnerships
2. Empowering local enterprises through skills building
3. Championing private sector-led growth
4. Promoting investments to Kenya by linking local businesses to foreign investors.

We believe the challenges of doing business in Kenya cannot be solved by the government alone or one company or one sector alone. But by pooling resources and sharing knowledge. Invest in Kenya Initiative proposes to promote new opportunities to drive the Kenyan economy to greater heights

Invest in Kenya Initiative has embarked on Three key projects:

a) Organizing International Trade and Investment Missions to allow Kenyan SMEs to showcase their products and services. This makes it easier for International companies to link with the right Kenyan partners to work with.
b) Business skills training programmes to allow SMEs and county government officials an opportunity to receive coaching and mentoring from international and local consultants to make them more competitive and more able to win business from larger companies/ investors.
c) Facilitating international investors to Kenya and matching them with partners in choice economic sectors including but not limited to;
• Agriculture
• Manufacturing
• Import/Export
• County Governments
• Cooperatives
• Housing and Infrastructure

The Invest in Kenya Initiative will be facilitated by Changemaker International in conjunction with Capacity Africa Institute working closely with various International partners.
