KENYA INNOVATIVE MANUFACTURING SPACE AND SOCIAL ENTREPRENEURSHIP
PART MAKER SPACE.
PART ENTREPRENEURSHIP HUB.
Based on the idea that adversity builds creativity, KIMSSEA is a coworking manufacturing space and start-up incubator. We are mentoring and empowering the next generation of East Africans to solve the problems most important to their communities.
Marginalized peoples facing hard economic realities must innovate daily as a way of life. Individuals from backgrounds like urban slums, conflict, areas, and refugee camps convert adversity into creativity. They turn networks into informal economies, upcycle unused goods into new supply chains, and learn technical skills through hands-on experience.
However, these underrecognized innovators are often poorly understood by most external bodies, treated with skepticism, financially under-resourced, and lack access to programs and infrastructure for incubating and growing their ideas.
We believe that these individuals will be the most incentivized to create wildly impactful social ventures that will reinvigorate their local communities with economic prosperity, food security, access to healthcare, and clean energy solutions. Our goal is to cultivate the right environment to see this enormous potential flourish.
Located 20 minutes from the Greater Nairobi Metropolitan Area, KIMSSEAs central hub location in Kitengela, Kajiado County will house the manufacturing space as well as the innovator campus.
