Kenya Shelter Tech Accelerator Kenya
Habitat for Humanity’s Terwilliger Center for Innovation in Shelter in Partnership with BDO EA and Pangea is exited to announce the launch of the ShelterTech 2018 program in Kenya. Habitat for Humanity is a leading global nonprofit working in nearly 1,400 communities throughout the U.S. and in nearly 70 countries; they started the Terwilliger Center for Innovation in Shelter to advance market-based solutions for affordable shelter around the world.
The program will provide support to 30 startups working in the area of energy, water, and general housing construction technology, and will work to grow their businesses, connect with mentors and advisors, and gain exposure to investors.
Access to water, energy and housing is not only a universal human right; these are also basic needs that must be met for nations to develop. While the Kenyan government has made substantial strides in improving access to basic utilities, there remains an enormous market potential to provide cheaper, smarter solutions for marginalized populations that have limited access to adequate utility and housing infrastructure.
The mission of this program is to find, train and support the most promising entrepreneurs addressing challenges in housing, water and sustainable energy for marginalized Kenyan populations.
EXAMPLE SECTORS WE ARE TARGETING
