Who is eligible?
The 88mph accelerator program is looking to attract both local and international applicants. Particular focus has been set on attracting talent from the African diaspora.
“Kenyans, and other African nationalities, who are currently working or studying abroad are increasingly looking for an opportunity to return home. These people bring a mix of talent, good education, professionalism, world exposure, and an understanding of local market demands and consumer traits. We hope to offer them an opportunity to return to Africa by providing funding, office, infrastructure and networks in a market with immense opportunity”, says Nikolai Barnwell, program manager at 88mph.
