Invitation to a Business Breakfast on Innovative Business Models in Kenya

Dr. Ute Heinbuch, Ken Nyauncho Osinde, Andreas Lämmel, Asmau Nitardy, Samuel Agutu, Michael Rabbow, Michael Gahler

The global debate on 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.

EurActiv Germany has therefore organised for key players from both sides to come together and share experiences and how best to incorporate the needs of both countries.

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

The discussion will generally focus on:

  • 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 more effectively support economic cooperation between Germany and Kenya?
  • 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?
