Welcome... to the Nairobi global shapers community
Launched in January 2012, the Nairobi Hub brings together a diverse group of highly driven individuals with backgrounds in business and investment, legal and finance, advocacy and campaigning, social enterprise and entrepreneurship. The Nairobi Shapers come from all walks of life but share a spirit of impact in our society through our 3 key pillars of: Entrepreneurship, Education and Environment.
