On Monday, British Deputy High Commissioner, Susie Kitchens, was among the guests on the first day of Nairobi Innovation Week (NIW) which is designed to support and accelerate the innovation and entrepreneurship ecosystem in the region.

Ms Kitchens attended the first Kenyan State Department for Industrialisation policy hackathon which was designed to help public sectors, startup entrepreneurs and incumbents co-design solutions that will have higher chances of tackling specific problems identified once implemented.

The discussions explored how the government could introduce tax incentives, develop start-up friendly regulations and increase access to affordable financing to help Small and Medium Enterprises (SMEs) grow.
