WHAT WE DO
Co-creation of an Accelerator for Small and Medium sized Enterprises. "Our goal to increase revenue, profits and jobs of SMEs in Kenya through the building capacity of the entrepreneurs and creating a more innovative County responsive entrepreneurial ecosystem".
During 2018 - 2019, Mike Mutungi, Nairobi together with colleagues and partners were piloting The Jiinue Business Accelerator. The program was co-created with Sustainable World Corporation Sweden and the senior business consultants Lars Birging and Thomas Hagwall, Science Park Jönköping.
The Accelerator were offered to Kenyan enterprises in order to scale up or accelerate new ideas and take them to the market. Coaches were trained during the process.
We made an opportunity for international guests in our network - from African countries and Sweden - to come to the exhibition and presentations during Nairobi Innovation Week, June 2019. To network and meet the entrepreneurs/enterprises.

"An increased number of closed deals with core clients during the Jiinue Accelerator 20 week period than during an average 20 week period of time, indicates that this kind of dedicated and active work with the value proposition and business model, among other focused areas is efficient and worth the cost in terms of time and money for the companies enrolled in the accelerator."
The business leaders of the companies, when interviewed after the eight modules of coaching that stretched over a 20 week period of time, gave testimonies that exemplifies the impact and outcomes in terms of clearer market knowledge, better understanding of the product, refined strategies and signed contracts with strategic customers.
