Launching idea Foundation at Strathmore

Visiting Strathmore in 2011
Strathmore University and Business School will be the first institution to offer start up funds for students and graduates. The first discussions of the idea started in January 2011 so things have moved fast and we are delighted that we can now go live and start to communicate with the student community. The Foundation visited Strathmore in April and was warmly received by Joseph Sevilla, Emmanuel Kweyu and Luis Borallo.
