Innovative business models in Kenya

Event Description

The event Europe+Kenya organised by EurActiv Germany in cooperation with the Embassy of the Rebulic of Kenya, Boehringer Ingelheim and the German African Business Association will focus on the following topic:

Kenya: A lion on the go! - Innovative business models in Kenya

The global debate on social innovative business models is of central importance for companies as well as the governments of Kenya and Germany; albeit from different angles and possibly with varying objectives.

The embassy talks will address the economic situation in Kenya and different perspectives, objectives and expectations.

The following key questions are intended to guide the discussion:

  • What is the economic situation in Kenya and what are the opportunities for German investors?
  • Which reforms and challenges is Kenya facing and what role could the EU play?
  • How can innovative business models support economic cooperation between Germany and Kenya more effective?
  • Can bilateral initiatives between companies and industrial sectors in Germany and Kenya (or measures between both countries) supplement existing measures of the European Union - or might these even be more efficient?
  • How can added value within Kenya lead to the creation of prosperity in rural areas?
