Bringing businesses across east Africa the bright, innovative talent they need to grow.

It’s an exciting time to be in business in East Africa. Entrepreneurship is on the rise as technology develops and consumers spend more. Yet as companies are experiencing rapid growth, they are struggling to find talented people to manage their transition to the next level. At the same time, many of Africa’s best and brightest – whether they are working at home or abroad – want to be part of the region’s story of change, but are not seeing the high-level opportunities they are looking for.
