“It is fantastic to welcome these talented entrepreneurs to the UK. Africa is a vibrant and dynamic continent, with huge potential for growth, and the firms chosen for the first Go Global Africa programme see tech as a force for good in society,” said the UK’s Minister for Digital, Margot James.

“I’ve no doubt they have the talent to play a transformative role in their country’s growth while also building connections for UK startups in new markets and highlighting Britain as the place to develop new technology.”

The UK has initiatives in the country among them; the Kenya Catalytic Jobs Fund which is running Business Innovation Challenge.

Five innovative initiatives are set to be selected by the fund and receive grant funding and technical assistance worth up to Sh13 million.
