Video of the Silicon Savannah Mission to Kenya 2018

From 20th to 24th March, Close the Gap and organized a unique mission to Kenya, one of the most entrepreneurial countries in Africa. In the context of the Digital for Development (D4D-BE) project, the Silicon Savannah mission aimed at discovering the Kenyan tech and start-up scene, together with Mr Alexander De Croo, Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of Development Cooperation, Digital Agenda, Telecom and Postal Services, and a delegation of 40 representing leading Belgian start-ups, corporations and NGOs.
