Event Details

After launching our first books in Africa last year, and with plans to launch our first impact-focused national book in Switzerland next month, we’re looking to explore Africa’s leading ecosystems in social, environmental and economic impact, particularly in Accra, Lagos, Nairobi, and Kigali.

Keen on connecting with Kigali’s startup scene? Or maybe you’re interested in being a partner for Startup Guide Kigali? Be sure to join us on Jan. 30th at Westerwelle Startup Haus for an evening of talks, drinks and mingling with the local community. The event will be part of Westerwelle’s Thursday gathering program. What’s more, attendees will have the opportunity to introduce themselves and their businesses to the rest of the audience.

The event will culminate at the beginning of nominations, at which time we’ll ask the community to submit their picks for the most innovative players in the startup scene.

Slowly yet assuredly, Rwanda is emerging as a key ecosystem with its ease of doing business. The capital city, Kigali, has become a startup hub and launchpad for local and international entrepreneurs alike!

Startup Guide Kigali Community Gathering is being organized in collaboration with community partner Westerwelle Startup Haus Kigali powered by Evonik Stiftung and supported by our partner SAP Africa and the ambassadors Impact Hub Kigali and G5 Business Makers Program, the booster Ideas in Motion and connector NIRDA.

18:00-18:30 Welcome and Drinks and Networking.

19:00-19:20 Q&A session w/ Startup Guide and members of the local community plus introduction round from the audience
