Launchpad Start Nairobi is an pre-incubation program for early-stage startups that will last for a week. The subjects to be focused on at the program include product strategy, UX and UI, technology, marketing, business development and presentation skills.

By making the extensive experience of the program’s mentors available to them, the program also wants to help these startups attain speedy progress in the shortest possible time.  The goal is for participating startups to have these four key takeaways at the end of the 1-week bootcamp: an improved product strategy, an optimized Minimum Viable Product, a technical excellence plan and a viable digital marketing strategy.

These 12 startups; Yoza, Lakt, Taimba, Paid, Magazine Reel, Request, Manyatta Rent, Entry Assist, Bitsoko, Smart Soft Experts, Sentil, and Ask Without Shame have been selected to participate in the event.

Presentations, one on one mentorship and instructor-led workshops are key areas that will be focused on each day of the bootcamp.
