MEST launches Nairobi incubator and tech hub, its fourth in Africa

The Meltwater Entrepreneurial School of Technology (MEST) has launched an incubator in Nairobi, Kenya. The incubator was officially opened at an event last night in the Kenyan capital.

It’s the organisation’s fourth hub in Africa and adds to its network of incubators in Ghana, Nigeria and South Africa.

Commenting on the launch of the Nairobi incubator in a statement today (21 September), MEST managing director Aaron Fu said the organisation is “thrilled” to officially establish its presence in East Africa.

The Nairobi incubator is MEST’s fourth such tech hub in Africa

“A truly Pan-African tech hub, we now have a presence across all corners of Sub-Saharan Africa — west, south and now east.

“I personally look forward to engaging even more deeply with the incredibly vibrant tech and startup community thriving in Nairobi, which I’m happy to call home,” said Fu.

On of the first occupants of the incubator, which is located on the seventh floor of Pinetree Plaza, is on demand storage marketplace Sharehouse which recently received a $100 000 in equity investments from MEST.

The startup will be joined by another MEST portfolio company, Nestmetric a business insights and predictions platform that uses machine learning.
