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.
Following the meeting in April the work has continued through out the summer. George Njenga visited Oslo in July to go through the plans and meetings and contact has continued on Skype an mail. The i@Lab Africa has been very helpful. In addition to the team we met in April we have also worked closely with Monica Kerretts. Monica will also be the initial contact at Strathmore for students who want to know more about the possibilities for start up funds.
