The programme aims to tap into the diversity of local young innovators to mentor and support their growth in order to create sustainable and scalable innovations in the region. The programme supports innovators on their journey to success that will transform different sectors of economy; technology, health, clean energy, environment, education, agriculture among others, while creating new jobs and increasing prosperity in their local communities. Our programme underpins their journey through access to EmpServe events and resources as well as customized training and mentorship that develop their creativity and technical skills.
iSIP is borne out of the need to build capacities of youth, with a ripple effect of enhancing higher productivity and economy growth. With ever rising population and need for employment in the region, we must prepare our young workforce to start taking a center stage in driving economy activities in the continent. Africa is projected to be a hub of massive economy transformation if we are able to capitalize on size of our young population.
As an organization that is inspired to lead this transformation, we have designed a programme aimed at building youth capacities in becoming innovative and scaling up into entrepreneurship for job creation and economy advancement. We specifically provide the catalyst much needed among the youth who have myriad ideas to solve the challenges facing communities.
iSIP is primarily focused on building capacities in youth in Kenya and surrounding ecosystem, both in employment and job creation (entrepreneurs). The programme includes 3 main segments;
- iSIP Hub
- Innovation Exhibition Forums.
