It’s time to fix the startup funding landscape in Kenya


If you’re an emerging market founder and you’re not part of a well-connected elite, it can difficult to build trust and relationships with investors, advisors, and other partners. In a recent Village Capital study, we found that more than 90% of funding for East African startups went to expat founders (most early-stage investors in East Africa are expats themselves).



I’ll reserve my thoughts on this, but I’m glad it’s in the public domain.


Its all a mix of racism,discrimination,bias and outright elitism…
