As part of our mission to provide a space for innovative startups, tech talent and growth capital to connect, we hosted our first awards celebration in Nairobi, Kenya on 30 June 2023. The event brought together Nairobi’s top tech innovators at the Capital Club East Africa for the launch of The 2023 Nairobi FutureList. The event was a showcase of the who’s who in the tech innovation ecosystem in Nairobi, where we unveiled the Top 50 companies shaping the future.

Fred Swaniker, our founder, says that one thing he’s learned during his 30 year journey of entrepreneurship is that startups need visibility. A lucky break. Someone to invest in them, mentor them, join their team, help them access customers, partner with them, open doors, or even acquire them. They cannot do it alone.
