Winning the 2nd place in ANPI 2019 constituted a major milestone in my startup journey. Beside the cash prize, the exposure, the networking and the connections were way more valuable. I had the honor of collaborating with the Nailab team in Nairobi throughout this journey and they have been extremely helpful and supportive, on all fronts.
Nailab gave my business the chance to continue when all hope was lost. The program I went under not only helped me finance my innovation's product development, but also refine my business model. The Nailab team went above and beyond to equip me with supplementary knowledge when I requested which helped me greatly understand the knowledge I was learning in the class to better implement it. I am grateful for the second wind of life Nailab provided and the continuous support I have gotten post my program. .
