TechInAfrica — The African Leadership University (ALU) and the Meltwater School of Entrepreneurial Technology (MEST) are going to launch their operations in Kenya where Nairobi Garage is chosen as the center of operation. They chose Nairobi Garage in the need to attract more Kenyans.
ALU offers a six-month leadership rogram called ALX while expanding its operations in Nairobi. The ALX program aims to empower potential individuals to launch careers of impact or their own venture. As it is operating in Mauritius and Rwanda, MES also wants to launch an incubator based in Rwanda from its Nairobi Garage home.

Being able to have a plug-and-play space and facility operations fully taken care of, enables us to set our focus to do the best and execute it faster. We really enjoy and are excited about extending network of businesses with Nairobi Garage.
