Experience

New Impact Hub Nairobi

Space Curator&Community Host

New Impact Hub Nairobi

Feb 2015

SPACE CURATOR: Impact Hubs are living, learning spaces and someone needs to make sure that ours embodies these traits to the last detail. It’s not just about throwing some tables, coffee and a WiFi router into a derelict building and hope for the best. The space has to support both our vision and business model. Mine, is to create a systematic and evolving environment that supports both innovation and creative thinking. COMMUNITY HOST: Our community will rely on its group of founders to build, grow and lead it. Culture needs to be set early on as it’s really difficult to change culture months into the life of our organization.
