Active Projects

Our Accelerator Projects go through 4 key phases of development: Strategic Development Areas(where shared value opportunities are identified), Innovation Campaigns(when solutions are sourced after an SDA has been funded), MVP Development(when solutions are prototyped) & Sector Scaling(risk-capital scaling after product-market fit).

Active Strategic development areas

Culture & Heritage Tourism Development

Cultural and Heritage Tourism represents an under-developed, under-resourced, and under-marketed segment of the Kenyan tourism sector. With 3 UNESCO World Heritage Sites, 42 cultures and countless other heritage tourism products, Culture & Heritage tourism represents an SDA with outstanding socio-economic potential.

Service Platforms in Related & Supporting Industries

Tourism’s microeconomic competitiveness is closely related to the level of development in related and supporting industries. Platforms which aggregate service providers democratize market access for service providers and bring more transparency for consumers creates a win-win dynamic improving the overall competitiveness of the industry.

MVPs in Development

Safi Housekeeping Services

Safi, Swahili for ‘clean’, is a women operated cleaning and housekeeping platform designed to service the needs of tourism accommodation providers in Kenya. Safi was founded on the belief that cleaning services for tourism accommodation providers represents an opportunity to marry capacity building, platform design and reputation systems to empower women of local communities through skill development, strengthening the tourism sector through formal job creation.
