Engagement

A recent Escape the City study found that only 30 per cent of young professionals find their jobs interesting, while 55% of people surveyed wanted to leave their employer because there was a lack of impact and meaning in their work. 

We offer the brightest business minds the chance to work on short term engagements in an entrepreneurial environment in a developing African country with a completely new team of like minded people.

The two weeks really pushed me out of my comfort zone and challenged me to think strategically whilst considering a number of factors unique to the Kenyan market

Impact

The corporate world is packed full of highly intelligent, passionate and hardworking people and we know that many individuals get extremely frustrated at the fact that they are not using their skills and drive to have an impact on the world.

Our programmes offer top performing professionals an opportunity to channel their experience and energy into something that can leave a lasting impact on a part of the world that needs it most.

The programme offered me a very unique chance to see the challenges that an early stage company faces when trying to raise money in a country like Kenya
