Thought we would write about upcoming events as well as the minor detour we have decided to take.
Today, while in a cab with our new pal Chris, we saw the iHub by chance. Better yet, it is on the same block. So tomorrow will be a long day, getting to know a few new faces and their projects. Expected length of stay in Nairobi will be until next Wednesday. Then, we’ll relocate to Moshi, Tanzania; a little town near Arusha. Slight change of plans but it will be really interesting. Johannes got to know a researcher in Kampala working with micro-financing will is genuinely important to look at when making a documentary on entrepreneurship. After all, it is the enabler for villagers and townsmen looking into starting small businesses of their own.
After Moshi, the original plans once again are viable for your information:
Moshi-Dar es Salaam
Dar es Salaam-Lusaka
Just spoke to Christian Pruijsen, the CEO of Sterio.me. A company that made it to the top ten most innovative African companies.
the project uses mobile technology to reduce costs and increase accessibility for homework in short-terms; when you look at the big picture: it lowers tuition and teachers can evaluate their teaching through statistics i.e adapting an improved way to lecture both individually as well as for classes.
