The Kenyan Techpreneur and Ecosystem, Who Does It Benefit?
The Kenyan technology ecosystem is growing rapidly, countless new startups emerge and multinationals keep pouring in. What is the history of this space? Where did it come from and who benefits from the system today? In other words, who is overlooked and what needs to change?
Angela Okune & Leo Mutuku bring their experiences as tech entrepreneurs, researchers as well as founding members of the Ihub to a paper they recently wrote entitled: Becoming an African Techpreneur: geopolitics of investments in “local” Kenyan entrepreneurship.
Here is their great paper: https://zenodo.org/record/6582284 and folks can reach Angela on Twitter @honoluluskye or through angelaokune.me; and Leo @leomutuku or through https://www.leonida.me/
